Embark in Tokyo, a city that balances tradition and modernity, then sail to Shimizu and bask in the serenity of the woodlands or view the majestic Mount Fuji. In Kyoto, Japan’s old Imperial capital, walk through Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Next, visit Hiroshima, a city with a range of restaurants, museums, and gardens. Cruise along the waters of the Kanmon Strait to Busan, the second largest city in South Korea, and stroll through its fish market or stop into a trendy café. Experience Nagasaki’s array of churches, temples, and shrines. Before the ship returns to Tokyo, enjoy a day in Kagoshima. This city embraces travelers with a mild climate, palm-tree lined streets, and, just off the coast, Sakurajima: one of Japan’s most active volcanoes.
