    You pretty much have to have a stop over in China if you want this prices. Also adds about 12-18 hours to the journey.

    Direct flights to Tokyo on this site start at about $880.


    Yeesh, lengthy layovers galore!

    Others have mentioned the long stopover, so I feel I should point out some things.
    Last time i was going to japan i considered flights from Xiamen and saw that on long stopovers you got a free short term visa to go visit the city (china usually requires paying for a visa). Also heard there were some fairly cool things worth a day there.
    Also from memory if the stopover was really long (might have to be night time too but i dont remember) you could get a free nights hotel accommodation.

    100% look into this yourselves as 1. that was 1-2 years ago i saw this so it could have changed and 2. im just going from memory so details are likely slightly wrong at least.
    But i feel like they are big enough things to remove the long layover as an issue for some people.

    I personally love these flight deals that go real cheap due to excessive stopover length because I like to have a mini 1-2 day holiday in places around the world i would never specifically travel to.
    Spent 2 days each in Ho-Chi-Minh and Manila (1 day each way) on my last two trips to japan. Lots of cool stuff in each, enough to really fill 2 days (and more), but not quite places i'd ever visit themselves.


    OMG. I paid $1256 for my flight via HK starting late march. Where were you a couple of weeks ago? :(
