    Cherry blossoms are end of March. Last two years have been early. By mid April (Easter holidays for 2020) there will be very little blooms to see in Osaka or Tokyo. Prices for that time are already $900+ and cheaper with other airlines.

      Just look at a jacaranda tree lol.

      •  

        I'd normally disagree with that but looking at my current budget I'm gonna have to do just that unfortunately

    •  

      There are many other places to see cherry blossoms other than Osaka and Tokyo in April.

      •  

        Very true. If I was to see sakura then Fukushima City might be an option. Less numbers and easy to travel to. Regarding the rest of Japan, some flowers blossom at different times of the year. It was a weird year this year, late February we had trees starting to flower at the end of February.

      what do you normally pay and what airline do you fly if you dont mind me asking looking at doing the same thing this year. i usually go in october but thought i'd try a colder month this time in hokkaido

      •  

        I'm traveling at the same time to both Korea and Japan over the Christmas/New year's break.
        I purchased a cheap ticket from the gold coast to Seoul for $220 including baggage with Jetstar. I haven't organised my flights to Japan, however I booked a cheap flight on the 6th of Jan from Penang Malaysia to the gold coast which worked out around $230 incl meals and luggage.

        You can regularly get cheap flights to/from Singapore Malaysia given they're major hubs for low cost carriers so I figured that would be a good place to book a cheap return flight from.

        Now I just have to play the waiting game for cheap flights from Korea to Japan and Japan to Singapore or Malaysia.

    JAL flies 2-4-2 with Dreamliners, not 3-3-3 like most.

    •  

      Qantas A333 (Flown from MEL & BNE I believe) are 2-4-2 as well and the seats are quite decent in economy. My wife and I are bigger people and fit comfortably in them with room to spare (Taking side seats, ofcourse). I absolutely hate the B747 from Sydney however.

    Ooooh, cheap flights! But, that layover. Decisions, decisions…

    • +1 vote

      just noticed there is a super cheap layover at Tokyo both ways if you go Osaka

      is it possible to bail at tokyo instead of completing trip to osaka on the way there then finish trip as usual from osaka on the way back..? what's the general consensus there?

        I think a lot of airlines cancel the rest of your flights if you miss a leg, so i'd definitely check with them before you do this.

  • +1 vote

    As great as these prices are, they are offered via dubious 3rd party booking sites like mytip.com which is offering the cheapest prices for this post. They (and other 3rd party booking sites) have been panned by the interwebs for shonky service if you even get service. While I appreciate IWTF's cheap fight finding service, I'd recommend booking directly from the airline's website or a legit travel agent if you can get the same/better deal instead to save from headaches and heartaches down the line

      I booked many trips with Mytrip.com and found no issues at all.

      People only put reviews for the bad experiences that they have. Those who do not have issues, never write any review. So, it's quite bias out there.

      • +1 vote

        Well I think it is good Neilgero pointed that out so people can go to read the reviews before booking then if anything bad happen at least they are pre-warned.

    •  

      I think most people nowadays (at least I hope after Bestjet fiasco) understand that discount fares have several factors implicitly priced in, like risk of 3rd party going bankrupt, extremely high cancellation/change charges, reduced FF earning rates, non upgradeable seats etc etc.

      At the end of the day consumer needs to weigh up those factors against the discount vs booking through airline. Sometimes it's even cheaper to get discount tickets + full-coverage travel insurance that covers things like bankruptcy than pay through airline.

    Just keep in mind that some of the layovers in Tokyo, you are flying into Narita Airport (NRT) and transiting into a domestic flight from Haneda Airport (HND) to Osaka. There is a considerable distance between transferring between the two airports - you are looking at 1-1.5hr hours travel time.

      You're right; plum blossoms are inherently superior to cherry blossoms.

      •  

        I think bot are equally as beautiful. There are many different varieties of both tree but from my understanding most Japanese cannot tell the difference between Plum and Cherry blossoms.

    •  

      I once thought that, but was won over on my first trip doing Sakura season. Travelled a fair bit of Japan since - specially to see the blossoms. Easy to get caught up with locals enthusiasm & partying🎏

      I love the fragrant Apricot blossom. Mass plantings of Plum are spectacular in flower… And Autumn change of foliage is fantastic.

    •  

      You’re not. I lived in Japan for a couple of years and despite growing up in a plant nursery business, I just couldn’t get excited by it. It certainly was nice to look at but if I was travelling, I’d rather another time to avoid the crowds. The best part of the blossom period was all the hanami (花見) parties.

    •  

      Fair call. I think Japan is prettier in Autumn plus less crowds.

    I wanna go to Japan so bad but don't have the time.

          What's a job?
          Worked 1 day in 2007 - my last day of work🎉

          I travelled 9 months a year overseas on holidays for many years since 2005. Kept costs low, got paid very well when I worked, looked for bargains & hitchhiked in many countries - especially rural Japan.

          There are ways of doing it. But much harder with a family.
          Have had so many great times in Japan since 2007.

            @Infidel: How old were you when you retired?

            • +1 vote

              @Hogg: I'd say 15 - after my first holiday job😀 I didn't like it & didn't like paying tax for my hard work. I've relapsed & worked occasionally since then.

              I think I'd have to really worked to say I've retired😉
              I could surprise myself & start working again… So I don't consider I've retired.

              Operating my own consultancy (to well paying clients), I came into my office a max of 2 days a week & operated only 6 months a year. In off season I'd trade my research design skills for things like staying free on a Barrier Reef island with scientists🌴

              Work usually gets in the road of what I like doing. I loved my own work, but the most frequent advice I provided to my very successful clients was not to work so hard. So took my own advice!

                @Infidel: I always enjoy reading your stories on these Japan deals. I'm finally going at the end of the year :)

                Working too hard is definitely a problem, I haven't been on holidays in 3 years.

                What is your educational background and field of work? I feel like someone should interview you for a podcast. I would listen the crap out of that.

    These prices are base flights with NO extra costs at all (Seats with flyovers can be $300, Insurances $100+, Ticket SMS etc
    They seem enticing at first till you try and book…
    It quickly adds up and it's the same price as if you booked with Flightcentre/Qantas
