Welcome to the city that captivates. With some neighbourhoods shining bright with neon lights and filled with futuristic architecture, others boasting glowing lanterns and traditional wooden buildings, and dozens of art galleries and cocktail bars hidden amidst concrete blocks, no two experiences in Tokyo are the same. Previously a small castle town, and now the world’s most populous metropolis, this capital city is always on the move and buzzing with energy. With Scenic Eclipse docked overnight, experience the best of Tokyo by both day and night.

Tokyo Shinto Shrine & Sake Barrel Ceremony
Encounter the magic of Shinto, the indigenous Japanese faith. Also known as The-Way-Of-The-Gods, Shinto holds the belief that everything in our world is inhabited by kami, divine spirits. Taking place at a Shinto Shrine, the traditional Shinto ceremony is woven with rituals that have become intertwined in the fabric of the country’s culture. Enjoy the scents and sounds of temple life: the ringing of the bell, the fragrance of burning incense, the drumming and chanting of the monks, performing their rituals. Relax in its tranquility. Participate in the 300-year-old traditional sake barrel ceremony to wish for good luck and prosperity. This ceremony is a deeply symbolic ritual and a culturally immersive Japanese experience.
