Historical highlights include the five-storey Pagoda of Miyajima, the 17th Century Matsue Castle and the sobering Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park with its eternal Flame of Peace.

Explore traditional art through visiting galleries and meeting local artists including learning the fascinating art of Japanese paper making on our visit to the town of Matsue.

Spend a day in South Korea’s Ulsan visiting the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site Gyeongju – the ‘museum without walls’ among other highlights.

We’ll also moor at Uwajima, one of Japan’s premier pearl producers with the opportunity to visit one of the city’s traditional pearl farms.


For nature lovers, we plan to venture into several national parklands, observe wildlife and experience the swathes of colourful fowers in bloom.

As well as exploring the famed flower farms of Hokkaido, we plan to visit the tranquil Tenshaen Garden built in the Samurai era, Kinashi, one of Japan’s leading bonsai centres, and impressive Edo-period Kenrokuen Garden (one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan).
