14 Night East China Sea & Japan Voyages
Join us on our cruise through the East China Sea, Japan's Inland Sea & Tokyo.
Voyage highlights include an overnight stay in Tokyo, an immense, frenetic and fascinating city. Join an early morning visit to the gigantic Tsukiji Fish Market, explore traditional Japan in the Asakusa District, or sample modern luxury in the Ginza shopping district. Additional ports include seldom-visited Ishigaki, an island paradise favored by Japanese locals, and an overnight stay in historic Okinawa with local onboard entertainment. Explore ancient Japan in the temples, gardens and shrines of Kyoto or Nara, both accessible from Osaka. You'll also navigate Japan's Inland Sea - a picture show of bustling commerce, graceful bridges and peaceful wooded isles - then exit through the narrow Kanmon Strait. Other highlights include the old Chinese colonial village on scenic Gulangyu Island and the world's best Chinese art collection in Taiwan.
