Offering more than just a taste of Japan’s weird and wonderful melting pot, this cruise takes you to places rarely visited on the tourist trail. Beginning in the neon jungle of Tokyo, sail first to Kobe, and a chance to sample Japan’s famous beef. Experience the quiet contemplation that Hiroshima brings, before traversing the Kanmon Strait to Fukuoka and South Korea’s Yeosu. Nagasaki and Kagoshima come next, before Beppu, known for its scorching “hells” or steam baths. End with a relaxing sea day.
