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

It's been a while since Jetstar has had a return to Japan free sale but the wait is finally over. The budget airline has just launched it again with fares starting from $249 return.

For those new to the concept, the way this sale works is that you start by choosing an outbound starter fare during the sale dates. Then, you search for an available return fare of $0.

The dates to search for these prices are 23 March to 30 November 2017. This catches the very end of snow season in Japan, so if you're lucky enough to snap up flights for late-March to mid-April you could make a ski trip out of it. Otherwise the sale also includes dates for Japan's driest and coolest months (March-May and September-October) as well as cherry blossom season in April.

Flights in this sale depart from various Australian cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Gold Coast and Brisbane, with routes to Tokyo (Narita) or Osaka.

Sample fares are: Cairns to Tokyo from $249, Cairns to Osaka from $299, Sydney to Tokyo from $502 and Brisbane to Osaka from $510.

Flights may not be available on some dates and there is limited availability on school and public holidays.

All flights include a stopover in Cairns, unless you are departing from that city in which case you will enjoy non-stop flights.

These prices are for Jetstar starter fares only and do not include checked baggage or on-board meals. These can be added for an extra fee.

The Jetstar Japan Return For Free sale is available until 11:59 AEDT on 7 February 2017 unless sold out prior.
