Fly to Japan from four major Australian cities from $349

Cherry blossom dates included.

When Jetstar isn't flaunting one of its outrageous Japan return-for-free sales you can bet rival budget airline AirAsia will steal its thunder.

That's what's going on today with the Malaysian carrier offering flights to Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo all from $349 each way – or $798 return – no matter if you're flying out of the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne or Perth.

Travel is available from now until 28 May 2019 and with no strict and fast blackout conditions, this means that seats are available during peak cherry blossom season, which runs from April to May.

These are likely to sell out first so if you're keen to catch the cities dressed in spectacular pink petals then browse through Flights Finder to your ideal dates to catch the very best price now.

This sale runs until 15 July 2018, giving you more than a month to consider your dates, send in your annual leave and sort out your travel group. As always though, seats are limited so it's first in, best dressed.


How good are these fares?

While not as spectacular as Jetstar's return-for-free offerings, which smash these prices by up to half, this sale does come with a wide variety of travel dates, allowing you to pick and choose your season.

This sale also doesn't discriminate against which Aussie city you're departing from, with flights from Melbourne and Sydney winning big with fares from $349 each way – a price which is more often than not reserved for fares out of Cairns and the Gold Coast only.

One thing to keep in mind though is that these flights are not direct, with all including a mandatory stopover in Kuala Lumpur. This is not dissimilar to Jetstar flights, which typically include a stopover in Cairns or the Gold Coast unless either is your departing city, whereby your flight will be direct.
