Japan’s Sakura or cherry blossom season is revered in both modern and old-world Japan. Sakura blossoms are beautiful, fleeting and simply a once-in-a-lifetime must see. Book-ended by the neon lights of Tokyo, delight in the blooms from Shimizu to Hakodate, whilst visiting three new ports for Silversea - Akita, Kanazawa and Yeosu.
Day by day itinerary
Fly to Tokyo where you will be met and transferred by shared vehicle to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Lights, sushi, manga! Sprawling, frenetic, and endlessly fascinating, Japan’s capital is a city of contrasts. Shrines and gardens are pockets of calm between famously crowded streets and soaring office buildings. Noodle houses share street space with Western-style chain restaurants and exquisite fine dining. Shopping yields lovely folk arts as well as the newest electronics. And nightlife kicks off with karaoke or sake and continues with techno clubs and more. Whether you seek the traditional or the cutting edge, Tokyo will provide it.
Check out of the hotel and take your included shared transfer to the port to embark the ship.
As South Korea becomes increasingly popular as a tourist destination, Yeosu remains a hidden gem. Punctuated by cliffs, islands and peninsulas, the scenic shorelines are nothing short of spectacular. Host to the EXPO 2012 World Fair meant that Yeosu received generous government funding in order to develop its waterfront, and the exhibition centre still stands. The butterfly-shaped peninsula is known for its succulent seafood and, in spring, camellia blossoms abound. Set in the very south of the country, the city is split in two by a mountain, and the two sides are connected by a narrow, keyhole-shaped tunnel.
Visitors to Akita will be treated to a rather to a beautiful city located on the northern tip of the island, around 500 km north of Tokyo. Lucky visitors will arrive in time for the superb sakura (cherry blossom), and surely there can be no sight more lovely than the elegant dip of the cherry trees alongside ancient Samurai residences. Akita is also home to a 2km tunnel of blossoming trees that run along the banks of the Hinokinai River, which is said to “bring a grown man to his knees and weep at its beauty”.
Throughout the year you can enjoy delicious seafood from Aomori Bay, including Oma no Maguro (tuna of Oma), as well as delicious fruits and vegetables (particularly garlic). Explore the history, beauty and "old meets modern" culture of Aomori during a picturesque, full-day sightseeing excursion to Hirosaki Castle, or discover the regional culture and traditions of Goshogawara.
