Cruises to Japan

Japan is the fourth largest island-country on the planet and the largest in East Asia. You will experience the hustle and bustle of big over-populated cities and the Zen of the tranquil countryside.

A cruise to Japan will take you to cities like:

  • Fukuoka
  • Hiroshima
  • Kagoshima
  • Osaka
  • Nagasaki
  • Tokyo

Tokyo is, no doubt, Japan’s biggest tourist attraction. The huge metropolis is full of:

  • Skyscrapers
  • Anime
  • Sushi joints
  • Manga

And everything else that you imagine when you think of Japan.

There is no wonder the city is extremely loud, there are over 30 million people living here. However, there are plenty of places to escape the crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet:

  • Beaches that are also good for surfing
  • Beautiful food that you can try at one of the restaurants or at a yatai – an open-air food stall
  • Shopping

Osaka that was once Japan’s capital is now one of the country’s greatest attractions. It is considered to be the most fun Japanese city with its:

  • Nightclubs
  • Comedy clubs
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping

The Best Time to Visit

The most picturesque time to visit Japan would be the months between March and May – this is when the famous Sakura blossoms start.

Visit in the months from September to November and you will enjoy very mild weather.
