Luxury Cruises to Japan

Japan is a country of contrasts and one of the most fascinating luxury cruise destinations in the world. With itineraries taking in a diverse range of ports, there is no shortage of captivating sights and new adventures to help you fall in love with this special country.

Where can you cruise to in Japan?

There are plenty of ports to visit during a cruise to Japan, from futuristic cities to peaceful temple-lined regions. Most cruises visit the popular cities of Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kagoshima and Kyoto for the ideal Japan experience.

What is there to see and do in Japan?

Japan is a melting pot of culture and contemporary life, fused with the history and traditions of the regions.

Follow the neon lights of Tokyo to some of the world's top restaurants, which have helped pinpoint this city as one of the best places to dine in the world - it has 314 Michelin stars!

Climb to the top of the world's tallest tower, Tokyo Skytree (600m) and witness the landscape of this remarkable city, spotting the peak of Mount Fuji as it pierces the skyline above the skyscrapers and bright lights.

Pay your respects at Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, before exploring the leafy boulevards and streets. Meanwhile, Kagoshima offers a mild climate and the tranquil Japanese gardens of Sengan-en to walk around, where you can view the constantly smoking volcano, Sakurajima.

Visit the many temples of Kyoto, famous for its Buddhist temples, gardens, and imperial palaces. Enjoy learning of geisha traditions, witnessing kaiseki dining and viewing Shinto shrines.

Which cruise lines sail to Japan?

Japan is a hugely up-and-coming destination, with many cruise lines beginning to offer sailings to this unique region. These include Oceania Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, Silversea, Crystal Cruises, Viking Ocean and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

When should I cruise to Japan?

The country's climate is generally best when visited either late spring (March to May) or late autumn (September to November). Visits at these times are greeted with little rainfall, clear skies and mild temperatures.

They are also culturally important times to visit, offering a more immersive experience when you cruise. With spring, you can witness the iconic bloom of the delicate cherry blossoms in Tokyo, while Gion Festival can be celebrated in July when visiting Kyoto.
