    While the private cruise ship The World was docked in Nagoya, we traveled to Lake Iruka on September 25, 2014 to see 65 Meiji-era buildings that have been relocated to form an open-air museum. The museum preserves historic buildings from Japan's Meiji (1867–1912), Taisho (1912–1926), and early Shōwa (1926–1989) periods. The most noteworthy building there is the reconstructed main entrance and lobby of Frank Lloyd Wright's landmark Imperial Hotel, which originally stood in Tokyo from 1923 to 1967, when the main structure was demolished to make way for a new, larger version of the hotel.

      While the private cruise ship The World was docked in Nagoya, Japan, we took a tour that offered glimpses into the Tokugawa shogunate on September 24, 2014. Our tour began at the massive castle that was the seat of power of The Tokugawa shogunate that was the last feudal Japanese military government and existed between 1603 and 1868. The heads of government were the shoguns and each was a member of the Tokugawa clan. The Tokugawa shogunate ruled from Edo Castle and the years of this shogunate became known as the Edo period. Our next stop was the Tokugawa Art Museum that features murals and objects from the Edo period, including warrior suits of armor. Our tour concluded with a visit to the sprawling Atsuta Jingu Shinto shrine that was the religious focal point of the Tokugawa shogunate.

        While the private cruise ship The World was docked in Yokohama, we took a tour of Kamakura on September 22, 2014. First we visited Daibutsu ("The Great Buddha"), which is the largest bronze Buddha in Japan and was cast in 1252. Next, we toured the Hase-kannon Temple, which is known as the largest wooden sculpture in Japan. Then we had an excellent lunch at Hachinoki Kita Kamakura that is recommended by the MIchelin Guide. Most people didn't like the cold jellyfish, so John Penhune was able to eat three or four helpings! After lunch, we visited the Tsurugao Hachimangu Shinto Shrine built in 1191 and the tranquil bamboo forest garden at Hokoku-ji, founded in 1334.

          While the private cruise ship The World was docked in Yokohama, we took a walking tour of Sankei-en Gardens on September 21, 2014. Designed and landscaped by wealthy silk merchant Tomitaro (Sankei) Hara, the grounds feature 17 artfully placed traditional buildings. Opened to the public in 1906, the tranquil gardens were created in the image of the Nara countryside. A traditional Japanese wedding was taking place during our visit to the gardens and our tour ended with participation in a tea ceremony.

            While the private cruise ship The World was docked in Tokyo, we took a walking tour of the gardens of the Nezu Museum on September 20, 2014. The gardens are very extensive and one could spend much time strolling in quiet solitude in this oasis from the bustle of Tokyo. The gardens feature topiary trees and shrubs, bamboo and stone fountains and pools, koi ponds, wooden tea houses, and varied statues of Buddha that many Japanese shower with coins hoping for good luck.

                      MAJOR SPOILERS FOR REBELLION! Don't say I did not warn you! Originally, it'd been about all of the girls; but during clip choice, I chose to basically center on Homura. & this song is basically a perfect match in my mind! & ofc I ended up finally centering solely on the Rebellion movie (altho I do use a bit of the others)! & yes; Homura is my fav character in pmmm. Since this is a bit dark, it is my video for Halloween this year. ;D & omg; can it be full? yes, it is!
