Peak season

A visit to Japan is on many an Australian’s bucket list. This fascinating country is rich in both tradition and high-tech goods; Japanese people are famous for their many rituals, not to mention their mind-boggling array of gadgets. For travellers arriving on cheap flights to Japan, at first it can be an overwhelming experience especially if arriving in Tokyo, one of the most populous cities in the world. Book flight tickets well in advance if visiting during one of the peak tourist periods which coincide with Japan’s national holidays: New Year, Golden Week (29 April to 5 May) and the Obon Festival (mid-August). School holidays (mid-July to August) also make cheap flights to Japan and accommodation more difficult to secure.

Off Season

Southern Japan’s rainy season commences mid-June, and is followed by a very hot and humid summer, this is punctuated by the typhoon season which finishes by mid-September. Most travellers avoid this period as the sightseeing is sticky and uncomfortable. Winter in northern Japan is bitter with heavy snowfall in the mountains. But if you don’t mind the cold, and want to soak in the hot springs, then early December is when the cheapest flights to Japan are available.

Shoulder Season

Plum and cherry blossom trees in spring are a famous sight and worth booking flights to Japan for. At the other end of the spectrum, autumn visits for the stunning foliage also make cheap flight tickets sought after.
