Through this exceptional itinerary, PONANT invites you to discover the Land of the Rising Sun, where the history of the samurai and the daintiness of the geishas exist side by side. 

In Maizuru, you will board your ship for a 9-day cruise to the heart of Japan.

In Sakaiminato you will set off to discover medieval Japan and the ancient dwellings of the samurai, who had lavish homes and castles built.

Your ship will then take you to Busan, a warm and welcoming city where you will enjoy a spectacular view of the port. This ancient city full of contrasts presents numerous vestiges that speak of its prestigious past.

We will call at Miyajima, home to the majestic Shinto shrine whose entrance is guarded by a magnificent vermillion Torii listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From Tamano, you’ll be able to discover the unique architecture of the historic city of Kurashiki, which was an essential port in Japan during the Edo period, as well as the traditional daily life of 18th-century Japan. In the village of Fukiya, you’ll be able to find out more about bengara, a precious red iron oxide pigment.

You will end your cruise with the discovery of the most Japanese of metropolis, Osaka, a modern, industrial and cultural city that is entirely turned towards the future. This city has been the national centre for trade and industry since the reign of Emperor Nintoku.
