Highlights of this cruise:
Yokohama and Edo began life as sleepy fishing villages. That changed in the early 17th century after Tokugawa Ieyasu became Shogun. Edo became the center of political power in Japan, a position the city retained even after the restoration of Imperial rule in 1866.
Contemporary Tokyo may be the most astonishing city on earth. It's a paradoxical mix of ancient tradition and postmodern culture. The Ginza - an international shopping mecca - stands near the serene grounds of the Imperial Palace, and the hyper-speed of 21st century consumerism is mysteriously reconciled with the elegance and serenity of traditional culture. Tokyo provides the traveler with a dizzying experience.
With the Meiji Restoration of 1868, Edo was renamed Tokyo, the "Eastern Capital," to distinguish it from the old imperial capital at Kyoto, the "Western Capital."
The second largest city in South Korea, Busan is your gateway to a fascinating land whose culture is a unique amalgam of old and new. Modern high-rise towers dwarf ancient Buddhist temples. The city's bustling business district offers a stark contrast to the serene grounds of Yongdusan Park. In short, Busan is a microcosm of South Korea, a nation whose startling economic success often obscures one of Asia's most sophisticated and venerable cultures.
Busan was the scene of bitter fighting during the Korean War. The United Nations Memorial Cemetery marks the final resting place for the troops from 16 nations who gave their lives during the conflict.
Akita is the capital city of Akita Prefecture in the Tohoku region of Japan. Akita is the largest city in the prefecture, and as such is the hub for transportation, sports, and shopping. It is a bustling port and industrial city with a few tourist attractions.
Rice farming and sake breweries are quite famous in Akita and form an important part of its culture. The Akita breed of dogs carries the name of the prefecture and is quite popular. Tourism is developing here, thanks to some interesting festivals that take place in this region.
Kanazawa is the capital city of Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. sits on the Sea of Japan, bordered by the Japan Alps, Hakusan National Park and Noto Peninsula National Park. The city sits between the Sai and Asano rivers.
Kenrokuen Garden is by far the most famous part of Kanazawa. Originally built as the outer garden of Kanazawa castle, it was opened to the public in 1875. It is considered one of the "three most beautiful gardens in Japan" and is filled with a variety of trees, ponds, waterfalls and flowers stretching over 25 acres (100,000 m²).
Other attractions in Kanazawa include the Kanazawa castle site, Omicho Market, the Higashi Geigha district and the Oyama shrine.
If you are looking for a great little bar, try Cambio Cafe and Bar Silk Building 2F Katamachi 2-2-14 Kanazawa. Takayuki is a great host. A good value modern cuisine Japanese restaurant worth a visit is the A.K.A (atelier kitchen for artisan) located 12-10-42 RENN Bldg 1F in the old Samari district.
