The cherry blossom season is in spring, around the end of March and the beginning of April.
The weather will be on the cooler side, especially when we cruise further north,
so warmer clothing will be needed but this isn’t a wet period, so it should be brisk but very nice.

“This is a fabulous Japan trip and it will be great if you can join me. It’s always a very popular itinerary and for 2021 it’s on a smaller shop with a maximum of 148 guests so it will sell out quickly and especially as it’s during the cherry blossom season.

I did this Wonders of Japan cruise with a group of eighteen in May 2016 and it’s a wonderful insight into Japan.
A&K is an excellent company and they have a knowledgeable expedition team who are joined by about
8 Japanese guides who stay onboard and accompany the tours; this adds to the enriching experience.

I’m really looking forward to being back in Japan for my 4th time as it’s so beautiful and interesting.

Please let me know if I should give you a call to discuss this trip in more detail.”
