Fly to Tokyo, Japan's neon-lit capital, where you will have some free time to explore this city of "hidden charms" (Traveller) which never fails to "dazzle first-time visitors" (Fodor's). Be sure to try some traditional sake and fresh sashimi. Trip highlights during the following six-day guided tour will include visiting the Hase Temple and the Great Buddha of Kamakura, admiring panoramic views of the Fuji Five Lakes, Mount Fuji and the Osaka Castle Garden.
You will then board Diamond Princess for your week-long cruise. Set sail from Kobe, a picturesque harbour city, ttravelling on to Okinawa, Ishigaki and Taipei in Taiwan, described by Rough Guides as "one of the most welcoming countries in the world" , before returning to Kobe.

Princess Cruises was recently named as providing the Best Cruises for Food Lovers (Food & Wine) and Best in Travel (Money Magazine). You will be cruising on Diamond Princess, which Cruise Critic says is "beautiful" following its $30 million refurbishment. It's ideal for those who enjoy some peace and quiet and a laid-back atmosphere. Famed chef Curtis Stone has helped curate some of the on-board menus, and we like the look of the open-air poolside cinema.
