Admire the natural splendor and artistic beauty of Setouchi with great food and company


Leave your worries behind and venture to idyllic Setouchi—part of Japan’s Setonaikai National Park—on this luxurious, leisurely cruise experience that is sure to stimulate all the senses. Setouchi Island Cruises offers pre-set plans, as well as the option to mix and match island destinations to your heart’s desire. Adventurous travelers can even set sail on a private boat on a course of their choosing.
Opt for a popular recommended plan, and enjoy the stunning view of the Seto-Ohashi Bridge at sunset, together with an island tour where you’ll experience the sheer wonder of each island’s art and nature—be it displays of the famed Yayoi Kusama’s work on the island of Naoshima, or Shodoshima’s sanctuary for lovers, Angel Road.



Upon boarding, surrender yourself to the ocean breeze and breathtaking sights you’ll encounter at each island and as you glide across the sea. Learn from the locals as they teach you all about local history, art, and cuisine. Savor morsels of fresh-caught seafood and other delicacies. Feel the sand between your toes as you walk across beaches of pristine white sand with the warm sun kissing your skin.

Whether you’re traveling alone or with a special someone, this remarkable island cruise is easily accessible from the port of Takamatsu on the island of Shikoku, and is sure to leave you with lasting memories.
