From £7953.16 Per person including taxes Sailing dates September 27th 2019

Discover the rich historical and cultural diversity of the western Pacific. 5,000 years of Chinese history collected in the National Palace Museum in Taipei; the unique crafts and music of the people of Ishigaki; the legacy of the Ryuku kingdom represented in the UNESCO World Heritage Shuri Castle on Okinawa; the samurai houses of Chiran; the Fujisan Sengen shrine in the foothills of Mt. Fuji; the Kumano Shinto shrines near Shingu – these are just some of the fascinating places you may visit along your way from Hong Kong to Osaka. Move into the 20th century as the ship sails – metaphorically – in the wake of General Douglas MacArthur on his way to accept Japanese surrender in 1945. Your two guest lecturers, James Bradley and Philip Hurst will guide you in an exploration of the origins and conduct of World War II, a defining event of the 20th century – realigning the balance of power both in Europe and in Asia, and establishing the United States as a global superpower.
