Book cheap flights to Japan and Travel Super! We’ll get you in the air for less...
With Tokyo due to take on the colours of the Olympic rings in 2020, this welcoming destination can only continue to thrive as a focus for adventurous tourists – especially served as it is by a number of flights to Japan from UK airports.
Most visitors jet direct into Tokyo, landing at either Narita International Airport (NRT) or Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND). Indirect Japan flights also land at Osaka’s Kansai International Airport (KIX), Fukuoka Airport (FUK), and Chubu Centrair International Airport (NGO), which serves Nagoya and central Japan.
Finding flights to Japan is easy with TravelSupermarket. We compare the best flights and show you the best prices, so all you have to do is click on the deal that suits you and go direct to the provider to book.
Japan is easily reached from the UK with a huge choice of direct and connecting flights...
Direct flights to Japan all take off from London Heathrow. There are daily departures with British Airways, JAL, Virgin Atlantic and ANA to Tokyo’s Narita airport, while BA also offers a daily service to Tokyo Haneda. Flying time is around 12 hours non-stop.
All other Japanese destinations are served by connections on arrival in Tokyo or via Europe, the Middle East or Far East. Lufthansa has flights via Munich and Frankfurt, Air France via Paris and KLM via Amsterdam, while SAS and Finnair travel through Copenhagen and Helsinki. Such departures can be taken from many UK airports.
Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad fly via their hubs in the Gulf from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, and Edinburgh. You can also find extensive connections with Cathay Pacific via Hong Kong from Manchester and London or on Singapore Airlines from the same UK cities. Connecting flights take around 14 hours.
This is the home of the high-speed bullet train, so you know that getting to and from the airport is going to be fast (and fun!)...
Road, rail, and even ferry services are on hand to get passengers from airport to city upon arrival in Japan.
At Tokyo Narita International Airport, the high-speed Keisei Skyliner train whisks passengers into central Tokyo in a little over 40 minutes for around 2,500 yen (£13.50 per person). The Narita Express train is slightly slower (50 minutes), but return tickets cost from 4,000 yen, saving you a few pounds. Bus services can be much cheaper, though heavy Tokyo traffic can lengthen the journey considerably. A taxi fare from the airport to central destinations in Tokyo costs around 20,000 yen (a little over £100).
At Japan’s other major airports you can expect bus, rail and taxi transfers.
Alternatively, pre-book car hire in Japan and collect upon arrival to save on the cost of airport transfers.
We don’t stop at cheap flights to Japan; TravelSupermarket goes further to bring you the best deals on hotels too...
Tokyo, the capital, the tourism darling, is a wonderful base for your break in Japan. Stay here for shopping, fashion, sushi, karaoke, and parks and temples, or stretch your legs a little further to see mountains and lounge in hot springs (or check out Tokyo Disney).
Elsewhere, destinations such as Osaka, Yokohama, Kyoto, Kobe, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo offer equally unique experiences.
Resting your head for the night in Japan is an experience in itself. Of course, large hotels with Western names and all the usual five-star trimmings are in abundance, but, for something a little more authentic, check into a ryokan (a traditional guesthouse), unpack at a minshuku (a Japanese B&B), or take your bathing suit and opt for lodgings where the soothing waters of a hot spring – onsen – relieve any sightseeing aches.
