Japan and China in Autumn

Explore the great cities of Asia with late and overnight stays that allow you even more time to shop, indulge and explore. Yes, it’s going to be good.

Osaka has endless opportunities for discovery. Want to shop? Head to the longest Shopping Arcade in Japan. Want to eat? This city is called the “Kitchen of the Nation”. Got castles on your mind? Osaka has a grand one! Finally, relax in tranquil Ritsurin Garden on Takamatsu, and visit the heart-stirring Memorial Peace Park in Hiroshima.

Kitakyushu is a stunning seaside port filled with eclectic attractions. Climb the 31-story Mojiko Retro Observation Room to take in uninterrupted views of this picturesque city and visit one of the most unique museums in the world—the Toto Toilet Museum. Of course, it’s not all potty talk here. This region is equally known for its unique spin on two Japanese favorites—curry and ramen. Take advantage of our late stay here with a bowl of Tonkatsu Ramen or rich yellow curry paired with a crisp Japanese beer after a day of sightseeing.

Enjoy two days at sea soaking up all your boutique hotel at sea has to offer as we set sail for China. Join an overnight tour to Beijing that includes the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven. In Shanghai we dock near the historic Bund with sparkling night views of the Lujiazui District. Did we mention the pandas? You’ll get to see them at the zoo in Dalian.
