    Awesome prices, and it's great to see the ACT included in this deal!

  •  

    SO CHEAAPPPP. I'm already going LA during the period :(

  •  

    can I get a similar price flying return from Tokyo to Melbourne?

    Good for Qantas and a direct flight but as an alternative for Melb & Syd for cheaper via the OP's link,

    • Melboure-Tokyo $585 with Vietnam (1 stopover) or direct with JAL for $662.
    • Sydney-Tokyo $598 with Vietnam (1 stopover) but limited flights.

    EDIT: Also an interesting option if you have United Miles and wanting to fly business/first class for cheaper. Pointhacks

    Oh man this is so tempting. I just went last year but it's never enough!

  •  

    I'm going to Tokyo for 10 days.

    I've been before but was for FIFA Club World Cup - Any tips on "must see" stuff??

    •  

      do the MariCar tour, it's awesome fun… and go to the baseball, it's an epic atmosphere

      was there last week, went to see the swallows play, had an awesome time

      •  

        Unfortunatly i think i miss the baseball as im going there in late Nov-early dec

      •  

        MariCar looked like so much fun. Make sure you get an international drivers licence though, the place I went wouldn't accept my Aussie one.

        •  

          yeah need an IDP, can get them from RACV (or presumably NRMA/RACQ etc in other states) for $39.
          we got ours the day before we flew out.

          and yep, it was heaps of fun :D

    •  

      Depends on your interests! Go exploring and eat delicious food :D

      •  

        :) Thats basically my plan. I want to do the OTHER disney park as i did the first one last time, and i wouldnt mind going to the Nissan/Toyota Museum.

        •  

          The museums sound cool! Maybe see if you can do the AkibaKarts (think Mario Kart in real life!)

          If you love theme parks, I'd recommend checking out Nagashima Spa Land or Fuji-Q. They have some awesome rollercoasters and rides. They're a few hours away from Tokyo, so maybe another time?

        • +2 votes

          @j4ck:

          fuji-q is the BOMB.
          if you go, get there properly early (like 30mins before the gates open) and run straight to the counter that sells the fastpass things. it'll cost you like 1000 yen ($10?) for each ride, but it'll save you literally hours.
          we got 4 passes, 1 for each major coaster, i wish i'd bought 2 for each. yes it adds a bit to the cost of your park entry, but those lines will quite comfortably hit 2hrs… and no this is not an exaggeration, one of the coasters had a 3hr wait time, and we went there on a monday.

          still one of the best roller coaster parks ive ever been to, highly recommend it! :D

        •  

          @jaybo:

          How good is it?! Eejanaika is probably the craziest rollercoaster I've ever been on! And they're reworking Dodonpa so it has a loop instead of the tophat.

          God damn, I want to go back…

        • +2 votes

          @j4ck:
          eeijanaika was violent…haha :)
          i think fujiyama was my favourite, just a good solid proper roller coaster… closely followed by dodonpa, that thing was seriously impressive.

          Ive been to six flags near LA and New Jersey (both the good ones!) and fuji-q was just as much fun :D
          was also pretty good if you've got young kids (we had 4x ~30yos, so of course we rode the thomas rides)

        •  

          @jaybo:

          Six Flags near LA is great, had a blast there! I think you'd love Nagashima Spa Land! It has the Steel Dragon 2000 which is the longest (track length) coaster in the world! Worth the trip if you're ever in the Nagoya area.

          @j4ck:
          we toyed with the idea of going there on our trip last week, but it was only a quick 5 night holiday which didn't lend itself well to doing a daytrip that far… was going to be horribly expensive :D

          i will get there… eventually… hehehe

    •  

      If you're into Onsens try out the Tokyo Odaiba Oedo Onsen. Its set up like an old Edo period town (small and inside) but the onsen rooms are pretty big. You get a special bracelet and use that to buy food and stuff. If you catch a cab there you get to drive over Rainbow Bridge :)

    Just got back from 16 days in Japan on Monday. Will definitely be going back.

          haha, Bargain hunting even when OS - Nice work!
          Sounds like a great holiday and the batteries will surely be recharged :)

        •  

          where are the hotels?

          looks like you spent a lot of time 'down south' - a part of japan most dont get to.

        • +2 votes

          @dtc: Hotels - Toi cape in Miyazaki prefecture, Kyushu.

          I used to live in Ichikawa city, Chiba and Sendai City, Miyagi and never did western Japan (further than Hiroshima). so I wanted to get to Kyushu this trip. hired a car at Fukuoka and drove south and stayed in Miyazaki. did day trips around Miyazaki and Kagoshima. really nice area along the coast. would like to spend more time in Kyushu and then ferry to Islands further south.

          Cheers - sounds interesting. Will have to get down there myself one day (have been to Honshu and Hokkaido)

        •  

          Some great ideas there, wish I'd known some of these last year.

  •  

    Go for the JAL 787 if you can only 8 across!

  •  

    any deal to Nepal from Melbourne?
    I am looking for a ticket in end of Sept - Oct..

      I was just having a look seems like cheapest would be fly AirAsia to KL then fly AA again from KL to Kathmandu.

  •  

    Thanks TA, good prices.

  •  

    Any idea if these prices will expire? Or is it just until sold out?

    Perth getting shafted, as usual !

  • +1 vote

    That's cheap but once you fly JAL or ANA you realise how bad QANTAS is - their seats are tiny - the food is horrible.

  •  

    japan airline has a better economy class with their 2-4-2 seat arrangement on 787 instead of 3-3-3 on Qantas 787. Last time I booked, the price was the same on the same period

    •  

      Unless you have three people?

      • +1 vote

        I agree if you want to sit together. Otherwise, individually, the seat should always be bigger on 2-4-2 (8 seats) compared to 3-3-3 (9 seats) given that the width of the plane is the same.

        •  

          True, unless it's just the aisles that are bigger! haha, but I would guess that the JAL service will be at least a notch above QANTAS.

  •  

    Can anyone tell me where to get the best Yen exchange rate ?
    Should I go to the banks in Australia (which i dont think so), foreign exchange companies like Travelex, or Japan airports etc…
    Thanks.

    • +1 vote

      Apparently it's not a good idea to exchange money in Japan

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/313391

    • +3 votes

      I suggest you exchange some in Australia. The rate should be around 1 to 80. Then open a citibank plus account and deposit your aud in there. You can use the citibank atm card in Japan 7/11 to withdraw. The rate when I was there was 1 to 82. Better than here but you do need some yen for convenience in case you couldn't find 7/11 right away in Japan. For big purchases you can use your credit card. The rate was similar at 1 to 81.

      Have fun

      • +1 vote

        Second this. Last time I went over there I setup a fee Citibank account, dumped a few thousand in there and just withdrew cash as I needed it. Exchange rate was pretty good and best of all no bank fees, only sometimes an ATM fee.

      •  

        thank you for the advice. You guys are very helpful

    •  

      kvb kunlun in Town Hall, Sydney

      •  

        Ditto in Melb. KVB always has the best rate anywhere/anytime. Guaranteed.
        Always best to ring ahead to check if they have enough ¥ (and in the denominations you want).
        I imagine Sydney would not be a problem though.

  •  

    I am thinking either Tokyo or Kyoto for my first trip to JP. Any suggestion ?

    •  

      How many days will you be staying? And do you like city stuffs or more cultural/smaller cities experience?

    JAL is also offering return fares to:

    Fukuoka (FUK) - $676
    Nagoya (NGO) - $680

    Got an email just now from SCF.

  •  

    Is iwantthaflight a reseller or a search engine? Just wondering if these deals from IWTF are legit safe as we all know how much riskier buying third party sold airline tickets, hotels etc. are versus going direct? Just curious - never used them.
