Cruise Ship Travel

Japan is a popular cruise-ship destination, particularly for upscale and luxury cruise lines, many of which do an annual around-Japan cruise. In fact, you might very well find yourself visiting more off-the-beaten-path destinations on a cruise than on a land-based tour, though the trade-off often means spending considerably less time in each place.

Hakodate, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Osaka, and Kobe are among the Japanese ports welcoming foreign cruise ships.
