Regent Seven Seas Cruises has unveiled a 10-night ‘Captivating Japan’ itinerary, taking guests to explore the country's iconic and hidden gems aboard the Seven Seas Explorer.
Scheduled for embarkation from Tokyo (Yokohama) on 25 April 2023, ‘Captivating Japan’ is now open for booking.
The immersive programme also includes free unlimited shore excursions and the additional luxury of a free three-night pre- or post-cruise land programme in Tokyo.
This luxury cruiser, featuring en-suite private balconies, gourmet restaurants and other lavish amenities, will take guests on a 10-night round trip to some of Japan’s most inspiring destinations.
Tokyo offers an unlimited choice of entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. Travel back in time to a bygone era at Sensoji Temple, obtain a bird’s eye view of the city from the Odaiba Observation Deck, or explore the buzzing shopping district of Ginza.
Kyoto is famous for preserving much of Japan’s history and boasts numerous culturally rich attractions. Bear witness to magical bamboo forests, ornate shrines and temples, impeccably dressed geishas and kabuki theatre performances.
As Japan’s second-biggest city, Osaka houses a kaleidoscopic array of splendorous landmarks and entertainment venues that include Osaka Castle, Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Aquarium and neon-lit shopping streets like the iconic Dontobori district.
Second only to Kyoto as the richest collection of traditional sites in Japan, Nara is home to some of the country’s best temples and shrines, along with beautiful gardens, museums, traditional neighborhoods and of course, the Instagram-famous Nara deer park.
Shimizu Port is renowned for being one of Japan’s most scenic ports with its breathtaking views of Mount Fuji. In addition to that, visitors can also enjoy the freshest sushi and sashimi from its seafood market.
Aptly dubbed the “Naples of the Eastern World”, Kagoshima is endowed with some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, including volcanoes, seas, mountains and hot springs that will leave visitors in awe.
