Japan Cruise

We apply a 24/7 hub structure in Japan, greatly simplifying how you communicate with local authorities, as well as the local agent.

Our Tokyo office provides operational updates and practical support for all ports across Japan. If you missed your spare part delivery in port, fret not. We will ensure you get it in your next port of call.

Matching technical expertise with fluency in both English and Japanese, our cruise consultants can also represent you in-person in all of Japan's cruise ports if needed.

With more than 50 cruise ports in Japan, choosing an experienced agency team who can help you plan and execute your port calls efficiently is essential. We provide your itinerary planners and operators the following: 

  • Port Calenders from each and every port
  • An overview of which vessels are requesting berth


With an in-depth understanding of cruise and your passengers' needs, we can also advise when necessary on alternative ports which can provide passengers a unique view of Japan. 

Assisting while your port calls are in progress, we contact each stakeholder in port to ensure that your vessel is given priority. Our excellent relations with port authorities and ferries enable us to do this.
