TRIP ITINERARY

10 Days: Hong Kong to Hong Kong

10 Day Adventure

Day 1 – Hong Kong

Departs at 5:00 PM

Day 2 & 3 – Cruising

At Sea

Day 4 – Hiroshima

A bustling metropolis dotted with leafy parks and ancient shrines, Hiroshima is a city with deep historical significance that has its eyes on the future. Here, you’ll find rebuilt traditional castles standing next to modern skyscrapers. Get a better understanding of the city’s place in 20th-century history at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Walk mindfully through the Peace Park area — see the Cenotaph for the atomic bomb victims and the towering Peace Flame monument overlooking a reflecting pool. Then, check out nearby Miyajima Island: See Itsukushima-jinja Shrine, a floating shrine gate based on a 6th-century original. Cruise to Hiroshima, Japan and hike Mount Misen — the summit offers quiet temples and dramatic views of the surrounding peaks.

Day 5 – Kyoto

Easily accessible by train from Osaka, Kyoto was Japan’s ancient capital city. Today, it remains the country’s unofficial capital of culture, history and cuisine. Explore the centuries-old Kiyomizu-dera Buddhist temple, perched a top a hill surrounded by cherry trees. Center yourself at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shinto shrine, with its long, meditative rows of red torii gates. Cruise to Osaka and stroll through mysterious gardens of raked gravel at Ryoan-ji temple, or roam through a bamboo forest at Arashiyama, called the Philosopher’s Path for its peaceful, reflective vibe. Then, see the bustling side of Kyoto at the Higashiyama District, where narrow streets lined with shops and restaurants wind up the side of picturesque Mount Otowa.

Day 6 – Kobe

Perched on a hill sloping down to the sea, Kobe is a maritime gateway to one of Japan’s most metropolitan cities. Mt. Rokko dominates the skyline — from the summit, you can glimpse one of the best views in all Japan. Of course, Kobe’s also famous for breeding Wagyu cows that produce some of the highest-quality beef in the world. The stuff is so delicious that almost every restaurant in the area stocks it. Cruise to Japan and make your visit a full foodie mission and stop off at Osaka to indulge in the local tradition of kuidaore — “eat until you drop.”

Day 7 – Kochi

Humming with happy energy, Kochi is a wholesome city blessed with green mountains and a network of blue rivers. The hub of the Kochi prefecture on the island of Shikoku, the city’s streets are bustling hubs of activity — walk by vendors selling everything from grilled Bonito fish to authentic secondhand kimonos. Don’t miss Kochi Castle, one of the only original castles from Japan’s feudal age still standing today, with its traditional white towers perched on a hilltop above the city. Then, check out one of the city’s 88 temples: The most famous is Chikurinji Temple on Mount Godaisan, complete with a five-story pagoda. Jump onboard a Kochi cruise and snack on imo-kenpi (candied sweet potatoes) in Hirome Ichiba indoor market.

Day 8 & 9 – Cruising

At Sea

Day 10 – Hong Kong

Disembark

Although it’s officially part of China, Hong Kong is a world unto itself. This bustling city is full of ancient and modern architecture, lots of people and — of course — the best dim sum around. Head to the Kowloon Peninsula for Golden Mile shopping along Nathan Road. Then, make your way to Hong Kong Island to admire the views from the top of Victoria Peak — you can see the skyscrapers of the financial district as well as the fishing village of Stanley Harbour. Cruise to Hong Kong and trek out to mountainous Lantau Island to see the famous Tian Tan Buddha, standing a full 112 feet tall. Or score some quiet time at Hong Kong Park, full of contemplative rock gardens and tree-lined paths.
