If Mount Fuji is on your wishlist then Virgin Australia's latest deal is a must.

You can score airfares starting from $699 return to Tokyo (Haneda) from Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns and Sydney. Flights that are taking off from Melbourne to Tokyo start from $799 and Perth to Tokyo from $899 return.

The option is yours to travel from 29 April to 17 June 2020, 28 July to 9 September 2020 or 28 July to 10 September 2020. If you want to catch the cherry blossoms book during April when they're in full bloom but do keep in mind this is peak season.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. You can normally find a good deal to Tokyo on a full-service flight at around the $900 mark with full-price fares exceeding $1,000 return. These flights come in at a possible $300 saving on your return flight.

  • Airline: Great. Virgin Australia is a full-service carrier that strives for excellence in the air. Your airfares include checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment.
  • Frequent flyer points: Great. Velocity Frequent Flyer members can earn 5 points for every $1 spent. By the numbers, that's a minimum of 3,495 points earned from the cheapest return fare.
  • Travel time: Good. Most of these airfares aren't direct as they fly via Brisbane and then on to Tokyo. If you live in Brisbane you get to fly direct.
