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

Toronto to Tokyo or Osaka / Kyoto, Japan - $614 to $681 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Osaka Kyoto, Japan

United Airlines and ANA (great airline) have dropped the price of their flights from Toronto to Tokyo and Osaka, Japan down to between $614 and $681 CAD roundtrip including taxes!

The flights have 1 stop each way, in Chicago.

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.

There are a *lot* of dates available.

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

Update 11/2 @ 5:00 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.

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.
