The 5-star carrier ANA and its Star Alliance partners Lufthansa and Swiss are selling tickets for flights from Dublin to multiple cities in Japan at discounted prices. The fares for a round-trip from Ireland to Tokyo start as low as €432.
Included in this fare is full onboard service as well as checked luggage. Depending on your destination, the availability is decent in 2020. But there’s also the occasional connection in 2019.
Your trip will include at least one layover, for most trips two. The first one will often be in Munich, Frankfurt or Zurich. And you will have to change planes one more time at some Japanese airport. This is if you’re not traveling to Tokyo.
Search & Book
Tickets for this deal will be sold until October 13th or until all cheap seats are gone. The offer is valid for trips commencing between November 2nd and June 30th, 2020. As already mentioned, availability depends very much ion the city you want to visit. Generally speaking, you’ll find more flights in 2020 than in 2019.
As in most cases, Google Flights (instructions) will help to find connections that fit your schedule. You can book directly on the carrier’s website or just use our Travel Dealz flight search to compare prices that OTAs offer.
The minimum stay is 6 days, with 3 months being the maximum you could spend in Japan before returning to Europe.
All tickets should be issued in booking class K. Most travelers that fly on discounted Star Alliance economy class tickets will know, that this won’t get you the highest earning rate. Around 30% is what you can expect on most frequent flyer programs.
Information & Tips for Japan
Japan, the ‘land of the rising sun’, is located in the east of Asia and is one of the most popular travel destinations on the continent. Big cities like Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto convince urban fans while ski fans get their money’s worth in Hokkaido and Tohoku.
Flights to Japan are usually a little more expensive than comparable offers to other destinations in Asia, but there are exceptions, and you can sometimes find bargains.
Best travel time
Since the country consists of many climatic zones it is hard to name a perfect time for travelling to Japan. However, summer should usually be avoided, as June is dominated by the rainy season and July and August offer sweltering temperatures with high humidity.
Most European citizens do not need a visa to enter Japan for a stay of up to 180 days if they do not want to work, study or train. Travelers that arrive under these conditions without a visa will be granted a residence permit as a “Temporary Visitor” for an initial period of 90 days upon entering the country at the airport.
