Compagnie du Ponant to expand Japan service

France-based small ship operator Compagnie du Ponant said it will offer several eight-night voyages around Japan in early 2015 on the 264-passenger L’Austral.

The sailings include a Best of Japan itinerary between Osaka and Maizuru that features stops in the Japanese ports of Hiroshima, Kagoshima, Nagasaki.

A single traditional Japan itinerary from Tiajin, China to Osaka features calls at such lesser-visited Japanese ports such as Hakata, Iwakuni and Uno Ko.

The trips are timed to take place during Japan’s popular cherry blossom festival season, marking the first time one of the line’s ships has visited the country during the period.
