The Best Way to Travel to Japan is on a Norwegian Cruise

Experience all of the beauty, history and mystery of East Asia on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise you’ll never forget.
Our cruises to Japan have been designed to provide you with as much time to explore onshore as possible. With an overnight stay in Kyoto, you will have plenty of time to uncover “Old Japan” – including the Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, the Golden Pavilion, and Nijo Castle. Our longer cruises to Japan also feature additional overnight stays in Tokyo.
Two captivating countries in one magnificent cruise. Set sail aboard Norwegian Spirit for the East Asia vacation of a lifetime, departing from Tokyo and Hong Kong. These itineraries combine port stops in the most popular cities of Japan and China. This means that you can experience a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto one day, and the Great Wall of China a couple of port stops later!
