Ponant takes you to the crossroads of three cultures and religions during an exceptional sea voyage between Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Aboard L’Austral, this 10-day cruise will have you discovering stunning scenery from Osaka to Manila, as well as places, such as Hiroshima, which have significant history.

Facing the Inland Sea, in “the City of Peace” where only the Hiroshima Peace Memorial stands as a reminder of past events, you will be able to admire the remarkable Shukkeien Garden, which stretches out over some 4 hectares.

Miyajima, the island where people and gods live together, is also accessible from Hiroshima. The Itsukushima Shrine, a Shinto sanctuary listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a fine example of exceptional artistic and technical ability.

You will then set sail to Okinawa, an island famous for its centenarians, who may just reveal to you the secret of their longevity!                               

You will then cruise to the Philippines and its idyllic islands. You will discover the bustling capital, Manila, and its city centre full of contrasts, where old districts and modern skyscrapers mingle.
