As Japan welcomes the rest of the world, delve deeper into the country’s cultural and natural wonders with an expanded Scenic Eclipse 2023 voyage collection to explore the iconic East Coast and historic West Coast. Visit more than six new ports including Hachinohe, Shimizu, Muroan, Sakai Minato and the spectacular ports across the Aleutian Islands.
From ancient Buddhist shrines to neon-lit skyscrapers and snow-capped mountains, there are many contrasts and unique experiences in Japan. On a Scenic Eclipse discovery voyage, your clients will explore this unique and diverse country in truly all-inclusive 6-star ultra-luxury.
Each voyage has an expert Discovery Team of up to 15-members on board, featuring scientists, historians, ornithologists, and archaeologists who will share deep insights into Japan’s fascinating history, fauna, wildlife and traditions. Guests can also enjoy the flavours of Japan on board at Koko’s Asian Fusion and Sushi@ Koko’s, including the dedicated Sake Bar.
A new and exclusive Scenic Enrich experience has been introduced to enable guests to gain insights into Japanese culture at a Shinto ceremony. The ancient tradition features prayers and dancing to encourage the purification of spirits and a sake Kagami-biraki ceremony at a local shrine is said to bring good luck to all who attend.
About 140 kilometres south of Tokyo is Shimizu, known as one of the most beautiful ports in Japan with views of snow-capped Mount Fuji and a seven-kilometre line of pine trees stretching along the coast. Visit the 150-metre wide Shiraito Falls, discover local art at the Tokaido Hiroshige Museum of Art or visit the Fuji Five Lake region for geothermal hot springs and a cruise on Lake Ashinoko.
A new addition to the Scenic Eclipse itineraries is the city of Sakaiminato, located in the Tottori Prefecture in the south of Japan. A Scenic Freechoice excursion will take guests to Mount Daisen, also known as “mini Fuji”, or to Grand Shrine of Izumo, thought of as the oldest shrine in Japan.
These are only some of the amazing moments awaiting your clients on a Scenic Eclipse voyage in Japan. As well as docking in unmissable destinations, guests will discover the intricacies of the country’s culture and history with truly immersive experiences.
Plus, after a day of exploring, they can unwind in one of the nine bars and lounges, enjoy a treatment in the 550 square-metre Senses Spa, or relax on your private verandah, with a private butler serving their favourite drink.
