    Book your cherry blossom flights, and then you can relax.

    Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

    Singapore Airlines is flying to Japan in peak cherry blossom season, with cheap deals heading into Tokyo and Fukuoka, starting from Perth to Fukuoka from $671 return, and Perth to Tokyo from $678 return.

    Flights are for the period of February to June, starting before and finishing after peak hanami season in both destinations. And prices like these don't come by too often, especially not for a travel period like this, and with a luxury full service airline like Singapore.

    The price is right, the travel dates are spot on and the destinations are great. The only possible way it could be better is with flights to Osaka as well, but you can't have it all.

    Cherry blossom season generally runs from March to May, arriving soonest in the warmer south, and later in the colder north. The forecast for 2018 has yet to be announced, but you're not going to find prices like these if you want that long.

    It's probably worth counting on a bit of luck and making an educated guess if you want a cheap trip there. Flying in early for an extended trip and waiting for arrival is probably the ideal choice, especially as they blossoms have been coming early in recent times. Or you can keep the trip tight and hope for the best.

  • Fukuoka - It's on the southern island of Kyushu. The cherry blossoms open up earlier in these warmer climes. You'll probably want to get there in time for late March if possible.
  • Tokyo - Further north in Tokyo, you can probably expect the blossoms to erupt about mid April.

These flights aren't part of any sale. They're going until sold out, but you'll want to get in there ASAP to get your pick of the best travel dates. The cherry blossoms might not be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but they're definitely a once-a-year experience.

Odds are these are the best prices you'll find for these enviable travel dates.
