Japan flights for $306 return: Jetstar return for free sale
Popular Jetstar sale back for flights May to November.
It works the same way as their last return for free sale where you choose an outbound starter fare during the sale dates and then get the return fare for $0.
You can fly from various Australian cities to Japan on select dates from 1 May to 12 December, with limited availability over school and public holidays.

Both your outbound and return flights must be purchased in a single booking between the same arrival and departure airports.

How good are these fares?
This time last year the fares were as low as $249 return so you’re paying $57 more round trip. If you’re looking at sales for similar dates, though, you’re actually winning out, with sale fares usually around $419.
The best thing about these fares is that they allow you to travel during some of Japan's best weather. The best time to visit Japan is in March and May or September to October where you get to explore the country in cool, dry weather minus the heavy crowds.
Flights and hotels are generally cheapest between July and August but you’ll still be able to find some good deals in the less rainy months of September and October.
