Our cruise continues in the Sea of Japan, to the south coast where Maizuru rises up: a strategic and charming port city.
The Goro Sky Tower enjoys a panoramic view over the islands in the bay; Maizuru Park contains the ruins of Tanabe Castle and, if you have the good fortune to travel in spring, you will be amazed by the spectacle of the stunning cherry blossoms. Recommended shore excursion north to Ryuguhama Beach and a stop at the Michi-no-eki fish market to taste delicacies from the sea in the form of sushi and barbecues.
Not to be missed:
The memorial room of the Maizuru Repatriation Memorial Museum
The observatory on Rias Beach
Kongo-in Temple with the characteristic three-story pagoda
