Cruise along the Seto Inland Sea
on a luxurious catamaran
March 1 to December 31, 2020
Okayama is in the heart of Western Japan. It has a mild climate and minimal rain leading to its nickname the “Land of Sunshine.” Uno Port in Okayama is the gateway to Naoshima, rewnowed worldwide for its contemporary art. From here, the cruise will take you on a tour of the islands in the Seto Inland Sea, including Naoshima, Teshima, Inujima, and Shodoshima.
This relaxing tour of the islands offers you the chance to gaze at nature, art, and local lifestyles from the comfort of a yacht. You also have the opportunity to stay on the desert island Kujira-Jima (limited to one group per day), where you can experience a variety of activities including barbecues, campfires, stargazing, and marine activities.
The Kujira-Jima Cottage Stay Plan will be available to tourists beginning from 2020. Overseas visitors will receive a special gift of sake brewed in Okayama Prefecture in 2020. Catamarans are available for groups of two people per cabin, and up to three cabins are available for reservation. You can relax in a private space on this luxury cruiser.
