So today I was booking Daughter Travelholic’s and Son Travelholic’s tickets to Japan in November from the East coast of the United States, and I couldn’t believe how cheap the flights were on United, using All Nippon Airways (ANA)! The flights were $533 each way in Economy to Haneda (HND) on ANA. With taxes and fees the round trips were only $1,200 which is significantly cheaper than usual. These fares count as a super discounted fare so of course no refunds or changes and also no Mileage Plus accrual on the ANA portions, but at those prices, who cares?
Anyway, if you have been thinking about visiting Japan and looking for a low fare, here’s your chance! Japan in the Fall is absolutely gorgeous, and the weather is fantastic too…so much better (for me) than summer, which is so hot. Plus if you are lucky you’ll catch the fall colors (which are legendary around Kyoto). We are going at the end of November, and the Christmas decorations at the large stores and modern shopping areas are quite fun too, especially if you are crazy about Christmas like me.
