Japan has two periods that are deemed the best time to cruise around Japan. The first is our Autumn time, Japans spring time (March to May) with the second being our spring and Japans autumn (September to November). Japan is at its most vibrant and mist bust too as this is when the cherry blossom and bright red leaves appear creating an added contrast to Japan's scenery. Because of this Japan is also very busy and can get very crowded.
From futuristic Tokyo with its bustling crowds to the traditional tea plantations of Shizuoka City, there’s plenty to see and experience on various cruises around Japan. Mount Fuji is always a must see whilst on a Japan cruise, each cruise includes some incredible excursions. Fancy a longer land tour? We can take care of that too.
