Tailor-made cruise

Highlights

Japanese Discovery with Silversea

Your cruise and private tour around Japan, Korea and China starts in Tokyo, a city of holy shrines and electronic meccas. The Bullet Train will whisk you past Mount Fuji to Kyoto’s geishas and tea ceremonies. A private butler continues the excellent service as you board the Silver Shadow for your cruise from Japan to China. Osaka and Hiroshima are some of the first ports of call, and next are South Korea’s beautiful Jeju Island and its charismatic capital, Seoul. China’s modern face may be on show in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, but you’ll find a wealth of history lies beneath the polished surface.

Visit Kamakura, the former de facto capital of Japan and home to Hokokuji Temple, Jomyoji temple and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.

Busan, Jeju, Incheon

Cruise to South Korea and your first port of call, Busan, with its white-sand city beaches and hot-spring resorts. On to Jeju, blessed with tangerine groves, swaying palm trees, white sand beaches and a verdant landscape - recently named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
