Prior to the cruise, I visited Kamakura's Hachiman shrine, Hasedera temple, Shijo Kingo's house and the Dai Butsu. I also visited Yokohama's Chinatown the morning of the ship's departure. I spent a few days in Tokyo as well, visiting Meiji Shrine, did some shopping in Shibuya, enjoyed the exhibits at the Mori Art Museum and National Art Center, took in the view from the Tokyo Sky Tree, visited Ginza, Akihabara and more.

On my port day in Yokohama, I visited Sankeien Garden. It takes about 20-25 mins to get there on the No. 8 bus a few blocks from the port. The Tourist Info in the Cruise Terminal are wonderful. They have maps, leaflets, costs, things written down in Japanese etc. The port is very close to some attractions so you can get of the ship and just walk around. Cruise terminal has free wifi. On the final day after transferring to Narita, I took the train (Keisei Line, 480yen return, 3 trains an hour, 1 stop from terminal 2) and wandered along a delightful old shopping street to Narita-San Temple which has quite a large collection of buildings and nice gardens. Its also wheelchair accessible so after climbing all those steps, I came back down using various lifts and ramps. I'm so glad I did this as I'd felt robbed of time onshore during the cruise.

We love Tokyo! It is about a 50 minute train ride to downtown from the port. Yokohama is a nice city to walk in. You can literally walk right out of the port into the city.

We flew into Tokyo early and toured on our own. We stayed at the Hotel New Grand in Yokohama which I would highly recommend. It's very close to where the ship docks.

Transit – Yokohama-Japan. As most Japanese cruises start and finish here, many would be familiar. There is plenty to do and see for the first timer in and around the port area, the local China Town even taking the subway into central Yokohama for some retail therapy, is very quick and easy. If you get off the boat early, you could plan a day trip to Tokyo or Kamakura. Read Less

Loved Tokyo. We had almost 3 days here and took the Metro everywhere. Very safe and easy to use, although trying to find the correct exit in the underground stations is difficult as they are so big. The Robot Restaurant is absolutely hilarious and a must see for anyone who doesn't mind loud music and lots of colour. The views from the Government Building and the Tokyo Tower were really good. Lovely gardens. The main road crossing is really good to do and you get a good view of it from the nearby station. Read Less

The ship docked at Yokohama so the ship's shuttle dropped us off at the train station where we could catch a train to Tokyo which was a 45 min trip.We were told we could get money from ATMs at 7Eleven or the Post Office, neither of which was handy. Local ATMs only accept local cards. On top of that, what they don't tell you is that the shops don't open till 10.00am so there was a very long waiting line at the Money Exchange at the train station. Most people had to get the local currency before they could do anything. After getting off in Tokyo, we walked to the Grand Palace, however, being a Monday, it was closed. We then decided to get a taxi to the Ginza district where we had lunch in a typical Japanese restaurant. Communication was interesting, with most young people pulling out their phones and looking up Google Translate, which was a bonus. When we got back to Yokohama we visited the local Chinese sector where we have never seen so many restaurants in one area before. Very interesting. Read Less
