Tokyo - Hotel Stay
You arrive in Japan’s mega-city at the perfect time to experience the mystical scents and colour of its iconic cherry blooms. The whole metropolis turns pale pink at this time of year. To immerse yourself in this enchanting symbol of Japanese culture, make your way to the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden or Ueno Park for the perfect viewing points of hundreds of flowering trees.
Tokyo - Mount Fuji and Lake Ashi tour
During your Tokyo stay, you’ll enjoy a tour of sacred Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain, dotted with shrines and circled by lakes. You’ll admire the symmetrical beauty of its near perfect volcanic cone, and take in stunning panoramic views from halfway up the mountain. With a stroll in the sky on the Hakone gondola, and a boat trip on the serene Lake Ashi, this will be a day to remember.
Tokyo - Hotel stay
Take time to explore this bustling, clean and easy to navigate city. It’s a place of contrasts – skyscraper skylines and ancient temples, edgy bars and Shinto shrines. Head for Sensoji, Tokyo’s oldest temple, and cross the Nijubashi Bridge on your way to the Imperial Palace. Go shopping in the Ginza district, and be sure to stop off for some nigiri-zushi and tempura – in Tokyo you’ve reached foodie heaven.
Yokohama - Embark Celebrity Millennium
Celebrity Millennium has a superb range of dining, activity and entertainment choices that have been designed with you in mind to give you a relaxing and rewarding cruise holiday. From a vast array of dining choices in a variety of surroundings to unique bars, lounges and clubs, you’ll be able to find the perfect spot to match your mood and occasion while on board.
On a clear day, Shimizu is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular views of Mount Fuji. A visit to the Sunpu Castle Park and Shizuoka Sengen Shrine will give you a fascinating insight into the achievements of Tokugawa Ieyasu, an important Japanese military leader from the 17th century. And why not have a go at making traditional bamboo handicrafts at Sumpu Takumi-Shuku?
In Kyoto, you’ll discover old Japan with its temples, shrines, palaces and pagodas as well as traditions such as flower arranging and the tea ceremony. Here you could visit the extraordinary Nijo Castle, the official residence of the Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, the Temple of the Gold Pavilion or the Heian Shrine and Garden. You may even spot a kimono-wearing geisha on your travels.
Compact and easy to explore, Kobe is one of Japan’s prettiest cities. Take the lift to the top of the Kobe Port Tower for memorable views of Mount Rokko and Osaka Bay, or relax in a hot spring bath at Arima Onsen, the historic spa resort. As you set sail again, there’s every chance you’ll be waved off by a throng of Kobe’s charming locals.
Home to Okada Izo, a notorious assassin from the Edo period, Kochi is now a relaxed and friendly city to visit. You can sample the boutiques of the Obiyamachi shopping arcade or take in panoramic views from Kochi castle, the only castle in Japan with its original Keep and Palace. For art-lovers, the Museum of Art houses a significant collection of expressionistic treasures.
In Fukuoka, at the extremity of the Japanese archipelago, you’re closer to Seoul than Tokyo. Step on shore and browse the shops of Canal City, Fukuoka’s stunning shopping arcade on water. You may find time to take in the Tocho-ji Temple, with its 10-metre high wooden Buddha, then admire the ruins of the 17th-century Fukuoka Castle in Maizuru Park.
Experience this unique taste of the Asian mainland by heading straight into the busy heart of South Korea’s second largest city. There’s something here for everyone, from the central shopping district of Nampodong, to the cafés and street theatre of the University District. Or take some time out from the hustle-bustle with a walk on the peaceful expanse of one of Busan’s white-sand beaches.
With so many things to do and see on board, you’ll be glad of a day at sea to explore what your ship has to offer. If you fancy learning something new, take a dance or art class, brush up your language skills with a Rosetta Stone lesson or discover the art of glass blowing. After all that activity, head to one of the chic cabanas for a quiet and relaxing picnic with ocean views.
There’s so much to do in this port town on Japan’s northern tip. You can soak in the famous 1000-person bath at the Sukayu Onsen hot springs, visit the stunningly futuristic museum of art, or marvel at the archaeological wonders of Sannai-Maruyama, a fascinating ancient settlement discovered when the area was about to be turned into a baseball stadium.
Today you could try your hand at some lawn games on the freshly cut grass at the Lawn Club. Join in some of the organised tournaments, head to the gym with floor-to-ceiling windows for spectacular views as you work out, or take your pick of the fitness classes on offer: Yoga, Spin, Zumba or Boot Camp. If that sounds like too much work, then just relax by the pool or head to the Canyon Ranch Spa for some pampering instead.
With an overnight in port, you’ll enjoy another opportunity to explore Japan’s capital. Tokyo has plenty of lasting memories for the homebound traveller to gather. Dive into the city’s neon nightlife or step back in time at a sumo tournament. And don’t forget to grab a bowl of ramen noodles and take a moment to absorb the mesmerising cherry-pink views of this city in bloom.
