Japan insider flight tips

  • Japan’s climate differs significantly between north and south. Northern winters can get bitterly cold and this is when the cheapest flights are found. You can always warm up in the hot springs! Summers in tropical south Japan are hot and sticky and most travellers prefer to avoid these.
  • Australians can fly direct with Qantas to the capital from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. To get to Tokyo and Osaka with Jetstar you can fly direct from, or via, Gold Coast and Cairns airports. AirAsia also operates a number of low-cost flights via Kuala Lumpur. The national carrier is Japan Airlines; they also run daily flights from Sydney to Tokyo and Osaka.
  • If landing in Tokyo, select your seat on the right-hand side of the plane if you can, to get the best views of Mount Fuji and the city landscape from above.
  • Travellers from Perth will usually find two-stop flights to be the cheapest or flights with AirAsia via Kuala Lumpur. Keep in mind AirAsia and Jetstar charge additional fees to check in baggage. Full-service airlines such as Cathay Pacific, Qantas and Singapore Airlines operate a range of flights from Australia to Japan but they tend to be at the top end of the price scale unless there is a sale.

How to get from the airport

Direct flights to Japan from Australia land either at Narita International Airport (NRT) for Tokyo or Kansai Airport (KIX) for Osaka. Public transport serves both of these airports well, with the quickest option being express train. Look for the JR Narita Express to Tokyo or the JR rapid service to Osaka.

The Tokyo-Sapporo route is one of the busiest in the world with around 80 flights per day, so look out for flight sales and you can snap up a bargain if you book in advance. Sapporo’s Chitose Airport is well connected to the city’s train station by a frequent JR rapid train service that takes around half an hour. There are also regular buses but they take twice as long and announcements are not always made in English.

Japan’s train and subway systems are some of the most efficient in the world. If you’re travelling extensively, look at purchasing a Japan Rail Pass before you leave Australia – it’s good value and valid on Japan’s most extensive network. There are numerous alternative rail passes to suit your itinerary with plenty of information available online, or speak to a travel agent.

Taxis are not a cheap way of getting around Japan as most locals and tourists rely on public transport. If you do want to flag one down, look for a red light as a green light means the taxi is occupied.
