Japan is steeped in tradition and lore, with ancient sites, hallowed temples and natural wonders throughout the island chain. It was meant to be seen from the sea and Princess cruise vacations can introduce you to the colour, culture and flavours of Japan, onboard and ashore.
There’s a reason CNN hails Japan as one of the “Top 10 Places to Travel in 2014,” and you’ll see more of this fascinating island nation with Princess Cruises. With an array of roundtrip cruise vacations from three Japan homeports, you’ll visit the top-rated ports by travel experts like Trip Advisor and Conde Nast. You’ll also enjoy unique Japanese experiences onboard from local cuisine and cultural events to Japanese-infused entertainment.
Porthole magazine named us "Best Asia Itineraries" and our enriching cruises to Japan more than live up to the billing.
Cruises generally commence in April and the season ends late August.
Cruises can depart from Japanese ports including Tokyo (Yokohama) and Kobe.
Visiting Japan can be enjoyable at any time of the year. April is often considered the best time to visit Japan because the cherry blossoms are in full bloom in most regions of the country and the weather is pleasantly mild.
May is one of the best times for visiting Japan, as the vegetation has become lush, the temperatures are still comfortable and tourists spots tend to be pleasantly uncrowded. In Hokkaido, the progress of spring is delayed by about one month compared to Tokyo. At the other end of the country, in Okinawa, the rainy season (tsuyu) typically lasts from early May to mid June.
August is hot and humid in most of Japan. The conditions are more comfortable in higher elevations and in Hokkaido.
