Azamara has unveiled brand-new travel experiences to Japan including new pre- and post-voyage land programmes and new shore excursions in Niigata.
The cruise line’s popular Japan Country Intensive voyages include Azamara Quest’s back-to-back 15-Night Japan Intensive Voyage in March.
The programme lets guests enjoy new experiences such as wine tastings in a local miso and soy sauce factory in Akita, mangrove kayaking in Ishigaki, exploring the Seiben Garden in Aomori, and much more.
They will also have the chance to explore the cruise line’s new maiden port, Niigata, known for its scenic mountains and expansive rice fields as it sits on the Sea of Japan.
Azamara is also offering a special three-night pre- or post-voyage land journey to the new Historic Tokyo and Hot Spring in Hakone, where guests can travel back in time to the samurai-era Edo.
Famous for its hot springs, natural beauty, and views across Lake Ashinoko of nearby Mount Fuji, the itinerary includes:
- An overnight stay in a Japanese ryokan in Hakone to rejuvenate body and soul with an authentic onsen (hot spring) bath experience
- Learn the dynamics of samurai aesthetics through a batto (swordsmanship) and tea ceremony
- Understand local ritual traditions like taiko drumming lessons in a nearby drum shop in Asakusa.
