Day By Day Itinerary 

Tokyo (Yokohama), Japan

April 13 2024 | Embark 1:00 pm | Depart 7:00 pm

Dazzling cityscapes await your exploration; visit Asakusa for the bright lights, street fairs and Senso-ji Temple; the Tsukiji Market, the largest open-air fish market in the world with on-the-spot sushi; and the Imperial Palace's East Garden for some calm. Spend the evening in the bright, active Ginza District, where the night comes alive.

Shimizu, Japan

April 14 2024 | Arrive 7:00 am | Depart 2:00 pm

In the shadow of Mount Fuji, Shimizu is one of the most beautiful ports in Japan. Walk through the pine groves of Miho, home to a 650-year-old Japanese black pine, or enjoy spectacular views of Mount Fuji from the lush, forested hill of Nihondaira. Take in the seascapes on a bay cruise, or learn of undersea delights at Japan’s first sushi museum. For a historic angle, get a glimpse at feudal life in Japan in 200 BC at the archaeological site of Toro.

Osaka, Japan

April 15 2024 | Arrive 9:00 am | Depart 8:00 pm

Prior to the 8th century Nara period, the capital of Japan moved with each new emperor, and Osaka was one of those earliest capitals, then known as Naniwa. During the Edo period, Osaka grew into a commercial center of the rice trade and became known as “the nation’s kitchen,” a moniker now applied because of the city’s reputation for cuisine so good that, as the saying goes, people go broke buying it. A vibrant arts culture also developed in the 17th century, including the famous kabuki and bunraku theaters that can still be seen today. Devastated during World War II, Osaka reemerged as a maze of bridges and skyscrapers flanking a moated castle that stands in the city center as a reminder of a regal past. The skyline gains further allure from the illumination of several Ferris wheels, unique status symbols of modern Japanese cities.

Kochi, Japan

April 16 2024 | Arrive 8:00 am | Depart 5:00 pm

Not the typical Japanese city, small and compact Kochi has gained a well-deserved reputation for its exuberant, easy-going spirit and vibrant food scene. The city is the birthplace of the legendary samurai Sakamoto Ryoma, who created an alliance that eventually brought down the Tokugawa shogunate and is now commemorated in a memorial museum. In the city center, don’t miss the well-preserved hilltop Kochi Castle to explore the grounds where the city was established in 1601. You might continue your downtown explorations at one of the many pedestrian shopping arcades or at a restaurant to try Kochi’s most famous dish – katsuo-no-tataki, a savory dish of grilled, ponzu-marinated skipjack tuna or bonito fish.
