'Konnichiwa’ and welcome to our exclusive cruise tour to Japan at her glorious best. Every spring, countless cherry blossoms across the Land of the Rising Sun bloom in a dream-like canopy of marshmallows and pinks, creating a world-famous spectacle. This fascinating exploration of Japan by land and sea will immerse you in the rich and sacred culture as you join locals celebrate the season of new life after Japan’s long winter.


Your spring sojourn begins in one of the world’s biggest cities, Tokyo, where you’ll be dazzled by the neon lights of the Ginza shopping district. You’ll experience Japan’s colourful and ancient customs through traditional tea ceremonies, shabu shabu hot pot dinners and Maiko shows where performers, dressed exquisitely in elaborate kimonos, dance while you feast on fresh and healthy local cuisine - famous for keeping Japanese alive longer than anyone else on Earth!


During a week-long overland tour, you’ll visit Japan’s majestic temples, castles and gardens, ride two, super-fast Bullet Trains and cruise on a pristine lake backdropped by the spiritual symbol of Japan, Mt Fuji. A 9-night cruise aboard Japanese-made Diamond Princess then awaits. Your six ports of call include the Japanese cities of Akita and Aomori where you’ll visit local cherry blossom festivals and also Toyama where a tulip festival will further brighten your holiday.


Long after you return from this enchanting journey of discovery, memories of your encounters in Japan will bloom as brightly as the country’s cherry blossoms.

Diamond Princess

As one of only two Princess Cruises cruise ships built in Japan, it’s not surprising this exotic gem can often be found sailing to the most intriguing vacation destinations abroad. Great-tasting cuisine can be found throughout the cruise ship, including at our popular Italian restaurant, Sabatini’s®, where freshly prepared pasta creations reign supreme. In the elegant dining rooms, you’ll find sommeliers to help you enhance your meal with paired wines. Poolside, our hand-tossed pizza is always served to you just out of the oven. And, as an added bonus, both Movies Under the Stars® and The Sanctuary®, a tranquil haven exclusively for adults, have recently been added to Diamond Princess!
