Japan by small ship with A&K
With close to 30 years’ experience in expedition cruising, luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has released 2020 dates for its alluring Wonders of Japan small ship cruise to the Land of the Rising Sun.
The two-week voyage reveals Japan’s hidden wonders at their most authentic, painting a detailed and indelible portrait of this fascinating island nation. Rarely visited ports and wilderness areas, which are impossible to reach by larger ship, are accessed and in the company of A&K’s stellar expeditionary team of local guides as well as historical, cultural and scientific experts.
Exclusively chartered by A&K for all-inclusive cruising for no more than 199 guests, Le Soleal affords every guest a private balcony, along with meals, house drinks, gratuities and a desirable crew-to-guest ratio of 1 to 1.3.
Highlights include: bustling Osaka; culture-rich Kyoto; Gyeongju, Korea, the ancient dynastic capital and UNESCO World Heritage Site; Hiroshima, where time is spent reflecting on Japan’s turbulent history and miraculous resurgence; famous gardens, markets and castles; as well as some unique art experiences during visits to leading museums. The journey also takes in the village of Karatsu, an early trading post with a rich medieval heritage, as well as the arts centre of Kanazawa, rice paddies of Sado Island and much more.
Fascinating on-board lectures and presentations are a feature on Japanese history, art, culture, gardens, nature and culinary traditions, led by A&K’s knowledgeable enrichment specialists.
