Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Tokyo roundtrip aboard Azamara Quest.

From modern metropolises to simple seaside fishing villages, Japan is a diverse and breathtaking place. And you’ll have the opportunity to see nearly all of it on your two-week cruise navigating around the country, beginning in Tokyo.

As you embark on your cruise, you’ll spend a day at sea before arriving in Aomori, home of the Hakkoda Mountains. From Aomori, you’ll sail to Akita, and pay a visit to the Kakunodate Samurai District.

Kanazawa and Sakaiminato are next on your journey, followed by an extended late-night stay in Busan, South Korea where you can spend your day with your toes in the sand at Haeundae, South Korea’s most popular beach. From South Korea, your voyage will return to Japan and the ports of Kitakyushu and Hiroshima. Then it’s back on board for a day cruising the Inland Sea followed by a trip to Takamatsu.

An overnight stay in Kobe is next on your itinerary, which affords you a chance to sample delicious sake from the breweries in the Nada district. And what better way to complement sake than with a delicious piece of Kobe beef served at a teppanyaki restaurant? After your meal, head to the Rokko mountains on the Shin-Kobe Ropeway for unbelievable views of the city—especially once the sun goes down.

After your exciting overnight in Kobe, you’ll sail into Suruga Bay toward the port of Shimizu, where breathtaking views of Mount Fuji await. Once docked in Shimizu, be sure to visit Miho-no-Matsubara, a beautiful park with more than 30,000 pine trees lining the seashore. Here, you’ll experience calming tranquility before returning for an overnight in Tokyo with memories to last a lifetime.

Highlights of this cruise:

Tokyo
It’s hard to imagine Tokyo as a tiny fishing village named Edo. Tokyo is now the largest metropolitan area in the world, an exciting city with a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, restaurants, museums, temples, and gardens to visit.

Start with the live tuna auctions at the Tsukiji Fish Market, the largest and busiest fish market in the world, then head to Tsukiji’s electronic equivalent, Akihabara Electric Town (Denki-Gai), for the very latest in gadgetry and games, and of course a classic sushi experience is a must. Slow down at the serene Meiji Shrine, the beautiful Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, or take it all in from high above at the Tokyo City View, the 52nd floor observation deck at Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills.

In a quintessential story of old meets new, Tokyo is fast-paced, trendy and high tech, but is never very far away from its enchanting past.

Aomori
Found on Japan’s main island, Honshu, Aomori City spends most of the year offering visitors a taste of a sleepy, seaside city mixed with forward-looking developments and modern art.

Combining the history of an established port town with modern facilities and attractions, the city has been called the economic and cultural center of the area.

The characters for Aomori mean “blue forest” which is fitting considering the city belongs to the Aomori Prefecture, which boasts gorgeous vistas including the beautiful Hakkoda Mountains, Oirase River and Lake Towada. Aomori City faces Mutsu Bay to the north and is surrounded by mountains in the other three directions.

The bay area of the city offers visitors the chance to feast on local delicacies, take in modern art and snap beautiful photos of the Aomori Bay Bridge, which is stunning at night.

Ambitious tourists looking to take in accompanying sights could make their way to the rugged vistas of the Shimokita Peninsula or Lake Towada, the largest caldera lake on Honshu.

Hiroshima
It is impossible to forget that this city was the first ever target of an atomic bomb, but Hiroshima has emerged from its tragedy as a vibrant and thriving community, a condition very evident during a stroll down Hondori Street, a bustling pedestrian arcade lined with shops and restaurants.

A visit to Peace Memorial Park is a time for reflection; here a flame burns that is not eternal, but will be extinguished when the last nuclear weapon on earth has been destroyed.

For the contemplation of scenic views, head to Miyajima, an island famed for its shrine and torii gate, both of which appear to float on the sea during high tide.

Kobe
Famous for the beef that bears it name, Kobe is headquarters for numerous Japanese and international firms, and has long been an important port. It is also a short bullet train ride from Kyoto, ancient capital of Japan from the 8th to the 19th century.

Here vestiges of the past are easier to find than in many of Japan's modern, high-tech cities: countless temples and shrines, the palaces and castles of shoguns and emperors, and narrow lanes paved in stone and lined with wooden buildings housing shops and restaurants that have been serving travelers for centuries.
