"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YHZ." - Chris Myden

Halifax to Tokyo or Osaka / Kyoto, Japan - $624 to $724 CAD roundtrip including taxes (new record!)

Osaka Kyoto, Japan

United Airlines and ANA have dropped the price of their flights from Halifax to Tokyo and Osaka, Japan down to between $624 and $724 CAD roundtrip including taxes!

From Osaka, it's a 26 minute train ride ($17) to the beautiful city of Kyoto if you use the special rapid trains on the JR Kyoto Line.

This is a new record for the cheapest flights from Halifax to Japan.

You can also fly into Osaka but home from Tokyo for the same price. It's also worth trying many other cities in Japan instead of Tokyo. See instructions below.

Update 11/2 @ 6:00 PM - It looks like this is over. Some cheap ones are still showing up on Skyscanner but through the slow booking sites (eDreams, Tripair) who may not have their prices updated yet.

Update 11/25 - Flights from Halifax to Tokyo are available again for around $650 CAD roundtrip. Travel dates between January and April, and in September.

Availability for travel

November, first half of December 2019

January, February, March, April, May, June, late August, September 2020

NOTE: April 29 to May 5 is Japan's 'Golden Week' when everyone in Japan goes on holidays, meaning everything is very busy, booked, etc.

The best time to view cherry blossoms depends on the location in Japan, and varies each year. As a general rule, in many areas it is from late March to early April.
