It's been four months since Jetstar's last Japan return-for-free sale, but it's back and we're understandably excited.

Flights depart for Tokyo or Osaka and with fares starting at just $306 return when flying the Cairns-Tokyo route, they're the cheapest flights from Australia to Japan on the market right now. The next cheapest fare is from Cairns to Osaka for $316 return.

Other standout fares include Sydney to Tokyo from $464 return, Sydney to Osaka from $518 return and Melbourne to Tokyo from $491 return.

In case this is the first time you've come across a Jetstar return-for-free sale, the way it works is that you purchase your outbound flight at its designated price and fly back for $0. You have to fly to and from the same city (so you can't fly out of Cairns to Tokyo and return from Osaka) but other than that, it's pretty straight forward.

Travel is available for various dates between November 2017 and June 2018, though it does not include peak dates such as cherry blossom season in April and ski season in December-March. On the upside, Japan is beautiful in spring with pleasant temperatures and low crowds. June is also an idyllic time to go scuba diving in the resort town of Okinawa and for festival activity.

This Japan return-for-free sale ends 11:59pm on 20 September 2017 unless seats sell out prior.

All fares are available to book through Flight Centre now.
