Tokyo Highlights & Japan Cruise

Colorful Autumn Season and Mountain Fuji with morning fog, Japan

Cruise & Stay Holidays

Get under the skin of Japan’s unique and timeless culture as you cruise the coastal highlights of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Following an exciting city break in Tokyo, this luxury 15-night cruise takes you around three of Japan’s four main islands: Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu before returning to the capital. It’s an effortless way to experience a different destination every day as well as enjoying all-inclusive dining and entertainment facilities. You’ll even get to spend a day in South Korea, exploring the port city of Busan. A good choice of optional excursions lets you gain a deeper understanding of each location. That said, following your nose can lead to equally interesting results. From free time and guided tours to spa treatments and socialising, if you’re looking to see the highlights and lesser-known seaside towns of Japan, this one’s for you.
