JAPAN  •  APRIL 14th – 28th, 2019


Immerse yourself in Japan at cherry blossom time. It would be so easy to get lost in the timeless beauty of Spring — peach blossoms near Tokyo, peonies, in Osaka, camellias in Kochi, azaleas everywhere. But the many splendors, contrasts, and realities of Japan’s history and culture draw your attention. Take advantage of a great journey to nine distinctive regions of Japan, each showing you the dualities that are integral to the country. As we sail around the island nation, learn about Japanese culture and get the latest in regional international affairs with Times journalists, experts, and scholars.

Enjoy the landscapes that locals treasure; cultivate your eye for Japanese craft, art, architecture, and gardens. The cruise setting makes Japan travel easy. Join a friend and experience Japan from its traditional ways to its modern urban energy.
