Vancouver to Tokyo Cruise: 16-nights in September 2012.

What could more interesting than cruising Canada and Japan! Totemo ekisaitingu! (very exciting!) Depart Vancouver and cruise the spectacular scenery and dramatic landscapes of the inside passage! Ketchikan, Famous for its colorful totem poles, rainy skies, steep streets, and lush island setting,is a favorite stop for travelers and your next stop. Juneau, is on the North American mainland but can't be reached by road. Its dramatic hillside position and historic downtown buildings provide a frontier feeling, but the city's cosmopolitan nature comes through in its fine museums, noteworthy restaurants, and literate and outdoorsy populace. In addition to enjoying the city itself, you will discover a tramway to alpine trails atop Mt. Robers, densely forested wilderness areas, quiet bays for sea kayaking, and even a famous drive-up glacier. The pretty town of Skagway, sitting on a deep water Fjord is your next port followed by Kodiak, Alaska. Russia is not a common tourist destination but who doesn't want to tell people they've been to Russia? Kamchatka is a spectacular, lavish landscape dotted with fuming volcanoes , fast-running rivers, and a wilderness that is inhabited by the largest brown bear population in the world. The largest eagle in the world, the Steller's sea eagle , is also found in the region. After spending a couple of days at sea, be welcomed by the Japanese into Hakodate. Hokadate has the most extensive bricks-and-mortar history of any Hokkaidō city. In addition to the most important and interesting sights recommended here, you'll find many wonderful decaying buildings, which are best appreciated by hiking the slopes of the historic Moto-machi area. Sendai is an open city with a generous planting of trees that justifies its nickname "Mori-no-Miyako": the City of Trees. With eight colleges and universities, including the prestigious Tōhoku University, the city has intentionally developed an international outlook and appeal. Sendai has a larger number of sights worth visiting, and you can easily spend a day looking around. Tokyo. A must see in everyone's life, this major city is perhaps the hardest to understand or to see in any single perspective, but you will love Tokyo!
