Quintessential Collection Included Cruise Package


Created specially for like-minded travellers. 

Japan is a country pulled in two radically different directions. It deeply honors its past while rushing headlong into the future. Hyper-modernity exists next to the quiet serenity of ancient shrines and gardens.

On this voyage you will discover both of these aspects of Japan as they are reflected in the art, culture, music, and gardens of its towns and cities. The traditional aesthetic is seen in the architecture and adornments of the Buddhist and Shinto shrines you will visit throughout the journey. The modernist impulse is evident in the architecture of the cities through which you will travel and is also represented in the arts on display in the Adachi Museum in Sakaiminato and the Busan Museum of Art.

After an included guided tour in Nagasaki, you will be hosted for a specially arranged traditional Shippoku lunch and Geisha performance. Sampling Japanese food and drink; experiencing traditions of music and dance; viewing art both ancient and modern; walking through modern cities and admiring ancient shrines – these are the elements of your immersion in the culture of Japan.

To enhance your cruise experience, enjoy discussions with art historian Timon Screech and landscape design experts Holly and Osamu Shimizu, who will join you on this cruise.

In addition, delight in onboard music performances by Reison Kuroda, master player of the shakuhachi (Japanese traditional bamboo flute).
