    Delve into the cultural and historical sides of the city of Hirosaki by visiting a museum filled with outrageous parade floats and a spectacular castle surrounded by cherry trees that bloom in the spring.


    Take a scenic drive to Tsugara Neputa Village, a museum devoted to the Neputa summer festival in Hirosaki. Similar to the Neputa festivals held in other cities in the Aomori Prefecture, Hirosaki’s festival features enormous floats with painted screens depicting Japanese gods, historical figures and mythological beings. Many floats are on display and seeing them up close will be breathtaking.


    The museum also includes exhibits of cultural items such as three-string shamisen musical instruments, local handicrafts and antique toys. Browsing the museum will be an enlightening, visually delightful experience that you will not soon forget.


    Visit Hirosaki Castle, a fortification that Lord Tsugaru built when he governed this region in the early 17th century. The original castle tower was soon destroyed by fire after being struck by lightning, but it was rebuilt in the early 19th century although scaled down from five to three stories to comply with restrictions of the Edo Period.


    Hirosaki Castle is a magnificent seemingly impenetrable structure, as it sits atop a sloped stone wall surrounded by fortified moats. The original castle grounds are now a sprawling park dotted with thousands of cherry trees that usually bloom late April to early May. As you will see, the park offers a wonderful setting for a relaxing stroll.

    Behold Japan’s tallest seated Buddha statue at a temple in the rural countryside and then then browse the massive and wildly colorful parade floats in a museum downtown.


    Arrive at Seiryu-ji Temple, a contemporary Buddhist temple completed in 1984. The highlight of the temple complex is a bronze statue of Buddha seated; the tallest of its kind in Japan. A beautiful greenish patina graces the outdoor statue, which rises nearly 70 feet and blends harmoniously with the forested backdrop.


    Nearby stands a magnificent pagoda with five stories that symbolize the elements of the Buddhist universe—water, fire, wind and sky—with the pagoda representing the universe. Also known as the Temple of the Blue-Green Dragon, Seiryu-ji is constructed primarily of cypress, lending it a wonderful fragrance as you browse the interior.


    Visit the Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse, which showcases some of the gigantic parade floats from Aomori’s annual Nebuta summer festival. Made of wire, bamboo and fragile washi paper, the brightly colored floats typically depict Japanese gods, historical figures and mythological beings.


    To better understand the scope of the parade, which draws millions of people, you might watch an introductory video in the museum or walk through the exhibits in the Nebuta Tunnel. Both detail the history of the festival and how the techniques used to create the floats have changed over the years.

    Start your adventure at the Great Alaska Lumberjack Show. Here, hardy lumberjacks bring to life Alaska’s colorful forest history with an action packed competition in the partially covered and heated outdoor arena. Cheer on your team of world champion lumberjacks in events such as chopping, sawing, tree climbing and more. Next, board your coach for a narrated scenic drive to Herring Cove. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a naturalist who will guide you along improved trails into the dense forest, for a chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat. The sanctuary borders the Tongass National Forest. Stroll through tall stands of hemlock, spruce and Alaska cedar, stopping at viewing areas to photograph this natural wonderland.


    The forest trail leads to an elevated boardwalk overlooking Eagle Creek where, during spawning season, salmon runs attract eagles, bears, seals and shorebirds. Bears and seals feed on the salmon while eagles and other birds wait for the scraps. Seasonal changes in the ecosystem result in varying levels of animal sightings. Next, watch a master Native carver at work on totem poles, walk through the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill and photograph bald eagles up close at the Alaska Raptor Center exhibit. Browse through the general store and enjoy a snack before returning to your cruise ship pier.

    Experience Skagway with Alaska’s original city historical tour for an informative fun filled 90 minutes to “all points of interest”. Skagway character Martin Itjen came here looking for gold in 1898 and became the town’s most celebrated storyteller.

Aboard your yellow 1927 sightseeing bus, your costumed “conductor” passes on a century of history, behind-the-scenes tales and stories.


    Explore the waterfront and National Park Historic District, enjoy the panoramic views from the scenic overlook and have your camera ready for the recounting of the Soapy Smith gunfight at the Gold Rush Cemetery. Highlighting the history of this gold rush town and the pioneer families that built it, you’ll motor through the residential neighborhoods of Skagway, famous for its flower gardens. A courtesy stop is made in town for those wanting to shop or explore before the tour continues back to the ship. Don’t miss seeing “all points of interest” aboard the Skagway Street Car.

    Soar through a tropical forest on two exhilarating zip-lines and enjoy a meandering walk through the jungle on a nature trail with towering suspension bridges.


    After departing from the pier, you will take a leisurely drive through the emerald-green countryside to the area’s only extreme adventure park. Upon arriving, you will learn how to maximize your experience during a brief orientation.


    You can then participate in three different activities, each thrilling in its own way. You may begin by strolling through the jungle canopy, much of it along suspension bridges and wooden boardwalks. From this vantage point high above the jungle floor, you can expect to see splashes of colorful flowers clinging to vine-draped trees, chirping tropical birds flitting through the air, and creatures such as iguanas and lizards perched on the branches.


    A more adrenaline-pumping adventure awaits you on the zip line, which involves sitting in a harness and darting through the treetops from platform to platform. It will be absolutely exhilarating as you pass over trees and through pathways cut out of the dense foliage at heart-pounding speeds. You will be treated to a literal bird’s-eye view of the gorgeous tropical landscape below so don’t blink because it will go by fast.


    For the ultimate thrill, try the Zuperman Zip. It is the area’s only forward-facing zip line with a special harness that allows you to fly through the air headfirst like Superman. Afterwards, you will return to the pier in Roatan.
