    Typically the shorter cruises you describe WERE reserved for ships that targeted Asian passengers. That is not to say that Westerners were prohibited from them, but that is the demographic those ships catered to. The cruise lines tend to market itineraries of 1 week or more to “Westerners”. You might find a “one off” itinerary that is repositioning from one Japanese home port in Kanto to another Japanese port in Kansai, but they would be few and far between. If you find one, chances are that most passengers board will be Japanese. Westerners typically don’t want to “fly and cruise” around Japan just for 5 days.

    With that said, EVERYTHING about travel is changing now, so we cannot assume the previous models will apply in the future. Time will tell, so we just have to wait for now.
