I asked Carlos Ghosn if he was interested but he said he wouldn't need a return... or a seat...
Wow that's a great price! Paid nearly double that for flights in November to Tokyo with JA out and BA back (JA were far superior). Bizarre but amazing country with so much to see/do/eat (especially eat). It's amazingly clean and efficient for such a densely populated country. I found the people almost invariably polite, friendly and helpful (except maybe in parts of Tokyo). If you plan to move around the country a bit, getting a JR Pass for the Shinkansen and local trains is usually cost/time-efficient. It's expensive, but you should see the prices on single tickets for the Shinkansen (especially the faster services)!

We stopped at Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Naoshima, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Koyasan, Tokyo and Hakone. Happy to offer any tips having been recently.
Good find.. Flew to Australia with Chine Eastern in December, nothing wrong with the flights, obviously not the same quality as SIngapore or Thai, but for the money. Shanghai A/P for a stop over was OK, modern airport, good facilities and so on.
I’ve just come back from my first trip to Tokyo, and flew with Air China. I realise this is a different airline, but I found the transfer in Shanghai was a bit of a pain, you have to go through immigration, collect bags, and get a tourist visa, then check back in and go through security again. Not sure if that would be the same for this airline, and that said, although it was an inconvenience it wouldn’t put me off at this price. Tokyo is amazing, and a lot cheaper than I expected. Don’t be afraid to stay a bit further out to get great prices on accommodation, everything is spread out and paying a premium for “central” will still see you travelling to visit most places. Despite only getting back to the UK on Tuesday, I’m tempted to book again with this deal. Also, with Air China I had a 2x 23kg bag allowance (plus carry on) so expect this is correct for China Eastern also.

Great for a pre-olympic nose around.

My girlfriend just flew from and to Japan with China Eastern. Pretty sure 23kg was the max limit per passenger
Tricky getting WiFi in a Chinese airport due to their childish restrictions,
Good price. Terrible airline.
Also some decent prices for AirChina flights around those dates. e.g. 19th March - 5th April for £394. Should hit cherry blossom season. Not the greatest airline experience apparently though.

good price, gonna try and get one of those free japan air flights next month though
Apologies if this sounds silly, Is my assumption correct in saying that its £359 price per person?

or is it the total cost of the flight?

Can somebody confirm please?

I've been to Japan few times, with Lufthansa, ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Air China. Air China was definitely the worst as they lost 2 out of the 4 cases our party took with us as they just diodn't manage to get them all over to the new flight in time. We had them back within 24 hours but it meant we wasted a good deal of the first day getting back to the airport to reclaim our bags once they finally arrived. The flight itself was OK really, but it was the stopover and transfer that was a real pain. Long queues, confusing instructions at times and late running flights. It wasn't the end of the world but I promised myself afterwards I'd gladly spend a little more to avoid them.

Worth noting that those are domestic flights only - ie. returning to/from Tokyo and Osaka for selected destinations within Japan. So you'd still need to get to the country on your own in the first place, and from what I understand it has to be a JAL trip in the first place, which will probably be a lot more expensive than this deal.

Wow amazing price! I'm going in April, could've paid £380 but chose better flight times & paid £415 with Air China I think.

Which free flights? Thanks
Good find! Just a tip: Book to fly into and out of Haneda airport (HND). It's currently showing the same price as Narita. Haneda is MUCH closer to the city centre. It also costs about £30 each way to get from Narita into central Tokyo.

considering we have paid £1400 (Lufthansa economy) with 1 stop in Frankfurt, this is cheap.
If there ends up being a price fluctuation on the tickets you can just get the express bus from Narita to Tokyo Station which should cost about £7 and take 45mins-1 hour.

Ideally you’ll be using the bullet trains in any case to see the rest of the country (which I found to be miles better than Tokyo!), in which case make sure you book a JR Pass in advance of arriving...they really put us to shame with their trains, even their economy seating is better than the UK first class...splurge a little extra for Japanese first class and you’ll be totally spoiled.

It's a great place to visit and yes Japanese appear extremely polite but only in a superficial way so don't be fooled.

I really wouldn't recommend this deal. Much more comfortable to get a direct flight for a few hundred pounds more.

Good shout. You should always factor in the cost of a JR rail pass (around £200) when visiting Japan, unless your stopping in one place. My brother lives out there, last time we went it cost him quite a bit more for his single from Tokyo to Osaka than i'd spent on my weeks JR pass.
Any idea if it's possible to stop in Shanghai for a couple days with these flights?
It sounded brilliant until I realised it was with China Eastern. Low quality = not a bargain

Arent they the same thing?
Whats travelup like ? I have heard only bad things about some of the sites likned to skyscanner like opodo, e dreams ect they give a good price but when you book they take miney then email saying ticket prices have gone up or not available . Which are the reccommened sites to book with?
Darn it! I paid £560 for my trip to Japan in September (going after the Olympics and Paralympics, hopefully it will be a bit quieter), but then again, I'm going with British Airways there and with Japan Airways back. Cannot wait!
Good price. Looks like they are the equivalent of Easyjet in terms of quality and service

Within each class of Economy, Premium etc you'll get different fare levels, meaning in Economy you'll get different luggage allowances. Don't assume you'll get 2x 23kgs.
If you're thinking of visiting Japan I HIGHLY recommend hiring out something special from Fun2Drive and hitting the Hakone Skyline

Don't you think it's worth checking out the website before writing your opinion...? It's 2 bags at 23kg or 46kg total per passenger...! 😳
