Kryssning till Shimonoseki, Japan

Shimonoseki is picturesquely situated between rolling hills and the wide-open waters of the Kanmon Straits. Hike or take the cable car to the summit of Mount Hinoyama — you'll be welcome to a 360-degree view of the city nestled in this distinctive landscape. Then, visit Akima-jingu, a Shinto shrine with classic red pagodas and a statue of Hoichi the Earless, subject of one of Japan's oldest ghost stories. Cruise to Shimonoseki, Japan and explore two islands in the straits: Head to Ganryujima Island and see the statue commemorating the 1612 duel fought here by swordsmen Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro, or take the Tsunoshima Giant Bridge over bright blue waters and relax on the white-sand beaches of Tsunoshima Island.
