Discount Air Tickets for Japan While regular airfares by conventional airlines remain relatively high on domestic routes, an increasing competition by discount airlines and a wide array of discount offers have made domestic air travel in Japan very attractive and competitive in recent years. In fact, there are so many discount plans, that only very few travelers are ever paying regular fares. Special fares and air passes for foreign visitors JAL (and oneworld) and ANA (and Star Alliance) each offer special fares and air passes for exclusive use by foreign visitors to Japan, which enable holders to fly anywhere within Japan for somewhat over 10,000 yen per flight (also referred to as "sector"). This is a very competitive price on many domestic routes, especially on longer flights, such as flights from Tokyo to Kyushu, Okinawa or Hokkaido. Like the Japan Rail Pass, some of the air passes have to be purchased outside of Japan and before you leave for Japan.

Hakodate Wikitravel Hakodate (函館) [1] is a large city in southern Hokkaidō, Japan. Understand[edit] Hakodate is in the north of Japan, and is the largest city in southern Hokkaidō. Baths of Kurokawa's enchanted forest Kyushu was until quite recently somewhat overlooked as a tourist destination, a Cinderella to the more obvious attractions of the main island with its celebrated temples, castles and samurai towns. But people are beginning to travel farther afield: enthusiasts come here in search of the Imari and Arita pottery the area is famous for, while the more energetic strike out cross-country hiking, cycling and climbing. True hedonists head for the small villages where rotenburo, open-air, natural hot spring pools bubble from the volcanic earth, drawing visitors from all over Japan and increasingly from abroad. The geology that produces such dramatic beauty of landscape can from time to time show its destructive force, as we saw last year.

The Best Time To Book A Plane Ticket, According To New Study Finally, there’s a scientific answer to that magic number of days before a flight when tickets are at their cheapest. The answer?

Too late for cherry blossoms in Tokyo? - where to see cherry blossoms When Japan's weather services issued their first cherry blossom forecasts back in the cold days of January and February, most of them predicted the season in Tokyo to peak in early April. However, temperatures in March rose far above average in most regions of Japan and especially so in the Tokyo region, taking the weather services by surprise and resulting in a record-breaking early cherry blossom season in the capital this year. Due to the discrepancy between the initial cherry blossom forecasts and the actual blooming dates, many foreign tourists who booked their trips to Tokyo for early April, are now arriving too late for the peak of the season. In order to help such tourists, we created this guide on how to see some cherry blossoms even when most of Tokyo's petals have fallen already. Option 1 - Take a side trip The cherry blossoms in many nearby cities north of Tokyo typically bloom 3-7 days later than those in Tokyo.
