Fly into Tokyo, Sapporo and Osaka for a steal with AirAsia.

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

We just can't get enough of budget Asian carrier AirAsia's latest and greatest flight sale. Dubbed the Mega Sale, it features over 220 international routes on sale with prices starting from $95 one-way.

For those eyeing a trip to Japan, there are three destinations with bargains to snap up: Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo. Fares start from $196 one-way on the Perth to Osaka route with other fares just as fair. For example, you can get from Sydney to Sapporo from $271 each way and Perth to Tokyo from $225 each way.

These fares are for travel between September 2017 to June 2018, giving you the chance to visit the land of the rising sun during autumn (one of the best times to visit for choice weather and low crowds), winter (ideal for shredding up the magically soft Japanese powder) or spring (to witness the stunning cherry blossom season).

All flights to Japan include a stopover at Kuala Lumpur.

AirAsia charges a $10 processing fee per flight per person on credit and debit card purchases. You can avoid this by paying with PayPal.

As a low-cost carrier, this price does not include extras such as checked baggage, on-board meals and in-flight entertainment. These can be purchased during the booking process for an additional fee.

We found these one-way fares on AirAsia but, for those who like to count their dollars, you can purchase return tickets for less on Hipmunk. For example, Melbourne to Tokyo is $285 each way on AirAsia's website but when searching through Hipmunk, we found returns for as little as $547.84.
