Japan

5 posts in this topic

Japan is a fascinating country and we have been four times in recent years but always on a world cruise or  you can do it on  a world segment. Most ships stop at various ports in Japan including the  Island of Kogashima. We have been to Kobe, Yokohama, for Tokyo. Kyoto, Kobe, Osaka  Nagasaki, and Hiroshima. Lots to see and we rode the bullet train cross country to see Mount Fiji. Wonderful scenery. Japan and Asia is one of my favourite parts of the world to cruise too.

Hi Maggieshoemou.

 

I trust you are well.

 

We have visited Japan on two separate cruises, both as segments of P&O World Cruises: Oriana in 1998 and Aurora in 2003.

 

We actually joined Oriana in Tokyo (well actually Yokosuka - the port for Tokyo). We spent 5 days pre-cruise in Tokyo and had a marvellous time.

 

So I guess that is one answer for the OP Jaccimac. Take a segment of either a P&O or Cunard World Cruise.

 

The other alternatives are Princess Cruises or Celebrity who both have regular cruises in that area.

Slightly off topic, but how things have changed in Japan from the boom years of thirty years ago.

Then a couple of relatively senior project managers on a tanker project lamented how they could not afford to join a golf club as the annual fees were prohibitive, like buying a house, but were effectively obliged to practise at driving ranges in case their seniors invited them to a round.

It was all about "not losing face", whether that be at work or in a leisure activity.

The long years of recession there have normalised quite a lot of things.
