Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: The best of Japan luxury cruise


This ships owners take their environmental responsibility very seriously. As signatories of the Blue Charter of French Shipowners (Charte Bleue d’Armateurs de France), they are committed to respecting the environment.
A carefully chosen selection of itineraries, coatings that keep air and water pollution to a minimum, respect for local populations, awareness raising in crew and passengers both aboard the ship and on land: everything is done to reduce the environmental footprint of the vessel.

Here are some examples of how this is achieved.
State of the art navigational positioning system that eliminates the need to drop anchor, this protecting the seabed.
A very quiet and economical electrical propulsion system.
An optical and submarine detection system that helps avoid collisions with cetaceans day and night.
Diesel engines fueled by Marine diesel oil which is lighter and less polluting.
All waste-water and solid waste is carefully processed.
Low energy light bulbs are used throughout.
The modern technology helps reduce smoke and emissions.


We have an on board resident Japan expert, who will advise passengers on Japanese customs and behaviour to make sure that our passengers don't make any 'cultural gaffes' in this country that many people find hard to understand.

The small size of the ship enables us to visit many smaller ports and harbours that are inaccessible to most other cruise vessels, and our on board fleet of zodiacs mean we can visit even small ports and inlets.

We encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts. By visiting some of the more outlying communities we will spread the financial benefit of our visit to some rarely visited areas of the country. It always, without fail, helps to learn a little of the language of any place that you are visiting and you will enjoy the interactions that this enables.

The ship’s managers will buy as much of their produce as possible from local communities, and we will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. By trying some local delicacies (often fish based), you will support the economy, it will be better for you and, who knows, you might enjoy it too.

We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.
