Bathed in varying hues of pink, the cherry blossom season in Japan is eagerly anticipated by both visitors and residents, marking the most celebrated time of the year.

Begin with a night in Tokyo before embarking on a circular journey around Japan aboard Holland America's Noordam. Discover the historic beauty of Kochi Castle from the Edo period, wander through the 17th-century gardens of Kanazawa, and marvel at the luminous canals in Otaru.

Returning to land, enjoy three nights in Tokyo, featuring two days of guided tours that include visits to the Meiji Shrine, the bustling streets of Shibuya, and Shibuya Sky for unparalleled city views. Admire the exquisite Sakura (cherry blossoms) at Hamarikyu Garden, cruise up the Sumidagawa River on a water bus to Asakusa – the heart of old Tokyo, and partake in a sushi-making class and a traditional tea ceremony.
