About this Blog


Via this Blog you should be able to figure out why it is so much fun to Cruise Japan.

And get all that information you'll need to tackle The Paper Work (PW) you'll be hit with, even before you make landfall.

Other boats have been here before and:

ALL complained about the PW (hey, the officials just do their job) but it's all done for free,

ALL are so pleased they have come here...so most have come-back plans.

If you need more info, go the right hand side of this Blog, there is a list of Blogs...

As yet the links are to the boat's HP and so you'll have to roam around a bit to find that Japan Info.

Happy reading and see you at the sushi bar!

42 feet Charter catamaran available for cruising Japan.

In case you would like to explore the cruising scene in Japan 
(the islands, the food, the people and its culture)

-- you think Japan is too far away to sail your own boat,
-- you don't want the hassles of Japanese boating officials 
( see and read some of the blogs),
-- you worry about the weather window to come to Japan,
-- or you don't have a boat....

Why not charter a completely outfitted 42 Lagoon Catamaran in Japan?

Fu Kyo is ready to take you from Nagasaki to Hiroshima 
and beyond.
There are 3 cabins, sleeping 6. All air-conditioned.
