9 Days / 8 Nights
We invite you to sail aboard the Soléal to the heart of the Japanese archipelago and discover the Land of the Rising Sun, which lives at the pace of its huge cities but is calmed by the serenity of its gardens.
When the Soléal calls there, do not miss the opportunity of making an exceptional visit to Pusan, South Korea’s second city, a blend of modernity and sophistication. Warm and welcoming, this city of contrasts offers a spectacular view over the port as well as the old quarter of Chalgachi, which has maintained its very picturesque character.
Fall for the indisputable charm of Kagoshima, dominated by the majestic silhouette of the Sakurajima volcano, which has become the symbol of the city. Come and see its undiminished power during a walk along the Arimura.
You will be comfortable ensconced on the outer decks of le Soléal when you get your first glimpse of the skyline of Okayama, an ancient 16th seigniorial city. Do not miss the famous Korakuen Gardens, one of the three essential landscape gardens of Japan.
From Sakaiminato, discover medieval Japan and its former Samurai homes.
You will end your cruise with the discovery of the most Japanese of metropolis, Osaka, a modern, industrial and cultural city that is entirely turned towards the future. “Mokari makka?” – “How is business?”.
