What’s better than a holiday exploring the neon-bright streets of Tokyo, immersing yourself in an ancient culture, and tucking into cuisine that’s as beautiful to look at as it is to taste? Taking it to the next level with a dazzling Celebrity Solstice Japan and South Korea cruise to Okinawa, Osaka, Jeju Island, Nagasaki and beyond, of course! It’s a voyage of exploration you won’t want to miss.

Satisfy your cravings for big city adventure with three nights in Tokyo - where the ancient and modern collide to spectacular effect. Glittering skyscrapers alongside traditional houses; bustling shopping malls down the road from serene temples surrounded by nature. It’s like nowhere else. Then, embark on your 12 night cruise aboard the five-star Celebrity Solstice. Visit the port city of Shizuoka, where the view of Mt Fuji will make your heart skip a beat, followed by the gourmet wonderland of Osaka - nicknamed the ‘nation’s kitchen’. While in Osaka, you could also use the opportunity to hop on the shinkansen (bullet train) for a quick trip over to historic Kyoto. Cruise to Kochi on lush Shikoku Island, followed by tropical Ishigaki and Okinawa, and then duck over to Jeju Island in South Korea - recognisable for its spectacular volcanic cone. Last, but not least, the historically significant city of Nagasaki is yours to discover before heading back to Tokyo.

This amazing 2022 package includes return international flights, a 12 night cruise, three nights hotel accommodation, and all meals while cruising aboard the fabulous Celebrity Solstice.

Get immersed in an unrivalled dining scene, fashionable boutiques, and endless cultural encounters in this ever-evolving city.

Famous for its shopping and nightlife, Shibuya is a major commercial and business centre. It houses the two busiest railway stations in the world, Shinjuku Station and Shibuya Station. The shopping and entertainment precinct is always a hive of activity, with locals and visitors all looking to snap up a bargain in the multi storey department stores, enjoy delicious ramen, or unleash the pop star within at a local karaoke bar.

Shizuoka’s rich history owes a lot to the trade that came in through Shimizu Port. The best way to view its splendour is from the sea. Cruises take in the port itself as well as Miho Pine Grove, Nihondaira Plateau, and Izu Peninsula. Other sights include S-Pulse Dream Plaza, a shopping mall complex with a cinema and a Ferris wheel.

On clear days, particularly in winter, Mount Fuji (Fuji-san in Japanese) is visible from as far as Tokyo, 60 miles away. When Japan's highest mountain is capped with snow, it's a picture-postcard perfect volcanic cone. One of the best-known symbols of Japan, this iconic mountain has been considered sacred since ancient times and was even forbidden to women until the early 1900s.

Today arrive in Osaka and overnight in port. Enjoy a day at leisure in Osaka or take a quick train ride to the nearby city of Tokyo.

Osaka is Japan’s second largest metropolitan area after Tokyo. It has been the economic powerhouse of the Kansai Region for many centuries. Osaka was formerly known as Naniwa. Before the Nara Period, when the capital used to be moved with the reign of each new emperor, Naniwa was once Japan's capital city, the first one ever known.

In the 16th century, Toyotomi Hideyoshi chose Osaka as the location for his castle, and the city may have become Japan’s political capital if Tokugawa Ieyasu had not terminated the Toyotomi lineage after Hideyoshi's death and moved his government to distant Edo (Tokyo).

They also trek to Tōrin-ji, a 1614 Buddhist temple that survived the 1771 tsunami to become Okinawa’s oldest wooden building.
