PONANT takes you to the crossroads of three cultures and religions during an exceptional sea voyage between the Philippines, Taïwan and Japan.

Aboard Le Lapérouse from Manila to Osaka, this 13-day cruise will have you discovering stunning scenery, places which have significant history as well as traditional villages and crafts.

From Manila, a city full of contrasts, you will join Hualien on the lush island of Taiwan, before heading towards the Japanese islands in the country’s south.

Okinawa, famous for having been the theatre of one of the bloodiest battles of World War II, is also known for its centenarians, who may just reveal to you the secret of their longevity!

Le Lapérouse will then sail to Hiroshima, now proclaimed “City of Peace”: Facing the Inland Sea, only the Hiroshima Peace Memorial stands as a reminder of past events. You will also be able to admire the remarkable Shukkeien Garden, which stretches out over some 4 hectares.

Miyajima, the island where people and gods live together, is also accessible from Hiroshima. The Itsukushima Shrine, a Shinto sanctuary listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a fine example of exceptional artistic and technical ability.

You will then cruise to Osaka, the second largest city in Japan which is home to a fortified castle dating back to the 16th century.
