Cash in on $220+ worth of savings when you travel to Japan with China Southern.

Full-service flights to Japan have been getting more and more affordable and the latest airline to slash the cost of flights to the land of the rising sun is China Southern. The 4-star airline has fares to Tokyo from just $580 return out of Melbourne and the best bit is that cherry blossom season is included in the sale.

Better get that credit card out.

Flights out of Perth start from $586 return while travellers departing Brisbane can spend as little as $600 to get there and back.

Unfortunately, Sydney flights aren't included in this sale, but if you're looking for a good deal on a great airline, Japan Airlines has flights throughout the year from $782 return.

Specifically, travel must be taken between now and 7 December, so Christmas is ruled out but all other holiday and peak periods are available to book.

The sale ends 30 March unless seats sell out prior. You can find out more and book all flights mentioned above via STA Travel.

How good are these fares?

The last time we saw full-service flights to see Japan's cherry blossoms was in January with Cathay Pacific boasting $803 return fares – a marked difference from those being offered today.

However, fly just outside of the season in late April to May and prices can come down to $599 return. For the budget-savvy who prefer to fly full-service, this saving might be worth it. For the chance to see the rivers dressed in a magical splay of pink, the extra $19 won't set you back too many bowls of ramen while in Japan.
