Location Tokyo

The wide ocean, the harbour with its special atmosphere, the hill which stands in a row of steep slopes, a Chinatown which is full of exotic moods – there are so many “postcard scenes” in Yokohama. Not surprisingly, many movies have been made here. Visit Kamakura with its temples and 35-foot-high Great Buddha. Take a bullet train to see Mount Fiji, or pack an overnight bag and set out for the ancient cities of Japan: Kyoto and Hakone.

Location Hualien
In
Out

Charming Hualien has a laid back, small-town vibe and one of the most scenic and naturally beautiful areas in Taiwan. It also provides access to the magical Taroko Gorge.
Hualien boasts an old-fashioned island culture with a friendly blend of ethnic minorities. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the imposing Central Mountain Range, it’s also home to some of the most stunning scenery in Taiwan.

Location Taipei
In
Out

Keelung is the port city of Taiwan, just 20 minutes ride from capital Taipei. Its long, deep harbour provides ample berth for the impressive number of cruise and container ships that keep it thriving.
You’ll find most of Keelung’s highlights in the central areas of the city, or within three miles of the downtown area. A walking tour really helps you develop affection for this beguiling port.

Date 12/04/2024
Location Ishigaki
In
Out

Approach Ishigaki with your eyes closed and you could easily believe you’ve been transported to the Caribbean.
Your guide to Ishigaki.

Japan’s southernmost city is the definition of paradise: pure white beaches, intense turquoise sea and verdant emerald vegetation as far as the eye can see. It’s a sight straight out of Robinson Crusoe; only with the addition of purple ice cream to cool you off. But, make no mistake, Ishigaki isn’t just for sun seekers. The island is rich with Samurai and Ryukyu Kingdom history, while adventurous visitors can kayak through mangrove-lined rivers, hike palm-laden forest and dive among manta rays in colourful coral reefs.

Date 13/04/2024
Location Okinawa
In
Out

Okinawa is the largest of the Ryukyu Islands in the Pacific Ocean and the homeland of the martial art of Karate. Meanwhile, the underground Navy headquarters have some incredible war stories to share.
Almost entirely destroyed in 1945, during one of the most extreme battles of World War Two, the island has rebuilt and renovated itself, managing to retain much of its rich cultural history.

Location Kobe
In
Out

Kobe begins your exploration of the cultural fountainheads of Classical Japan. From here, ride the rapid bullet train to the classical pavilions and calm temples of Kyoto, capital of Japan until 1868.
Kyoto is notable for its elegant timber buildings, and imbued more than any other Japanese city with the divine spirit, Kami. There are countless Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples here.

Date 19/04/2024
Location Kochi
In
Out

Kochi is the capital of the Kochi Prefecture, which is located on Shikoku, the smallest of the four main islands which make up Japan, in a region scattered with temples and forested mountains.
One of Kochi’s main sights is the castle complex, whose main tower, or donjon, is one of just twelve to remain intact across Japan. Its origins lie in the early 1600s, even if most of the buildings were rebuilt after a devastating fire in the mid-1700s. Several points make it unique, notably that its donjon served not just a military function, but as a residence too. Wooden interiors show how the castle would have looked during the Edo Period, and its lookout point offers fine views over the city.

Location Pusan
In
Out

Busan is South Korea’s second largest city and seaport, and it’s a laid-back, metropolitan destination. Its pace is slower, and its diversity more pronounced, than the country’s capital city of Seoul.
Busan has an intriguing medley of culture and history, beautiful natural settings and exciting adventures. It’s also near South Korea’s cultural capital, Gyeongju, and the fortress of Jinju.

Date 22/04/2024
Location Nagasaki
In
Out

Japan’s first real contact with the West was through Portuguese explorers and Jesuit missionaries, and then Dutch merchants. Apprehensive Shoguns thus closed Japan to foreign trade except at Nagasaki.
Stop by Peace Park for a moment of serenity, or visit the Confucian Shrine to see the influence that the Chinese community has on Nagasaki.

With moving peace monuments to the end of World War II, Hiroshima is a modern city that has emerged from its defining days with purpose and confidence. This is a forward-looking yet traditional city.
Beyond the evocative Atomic Bomb Dome, you’ll find the landscaped Shukkeien Garden, the Mazda Museum, and the okonomiyaki, a batter and cabbage pancake topped with octopus, shrimp or pork.
