FAQs - booking Japan flights

  • How simple is it to fly to Japan with kids from Canadian airports?

    To lessen the possibility that your kids would become fatigued throughout the Canada to Japan journey, think about making reservations with airlines that provide free internet connectivity. Japan Airlines and Qatar Airways are examples of airlines that offer unrestricted internet access between Canada and Japan. Your kids can watch their favorite animated networks or TV shows by using the internet services offered by these carriers, which lessens boredom.

  • If I want to enjoy watching sports in Japan, where should they fly to?

    When visiting Japan, consider flying through Narita International Airport (NRT) if you want to attend local sporting events and gaming-related activities. Tokyo, the nation's capital, is home to the bulk of Japan's stadiums. At Ryogoku Kokugikan Stadium, Japan National Stadium, and National Yoyogi Stadium, you may watch your preferred local soccer matches, especially on the weekends. From NRT Airport, getting to these stadiums is simple thanks to the availability of train system, rental cars, taxis, and buses.

  • Are there direct flights to Japan?

    Several Canadian and Japanese carriers such as Air Canada, ANA and Japan Airlines offer direct flights to Japan, with the vast majority flying into Tokyo's two international airports, Narita International Airport (NRT) and Haneda Airport (HND). Air Canada seasonally offers direct flights from Vancouver International Airport to Kansai International Airport (KIX) in Osaka.

  • Do I need a visa to visit Japan?

    Canadian citizens do not need a visa if they enter Japan as a tourist and their stay does not exceed 90 days. Upon arrival, you must present a passport that is valid for the entire duration of your stay as well as proof of onward or return travel, such as an airline ticket and confirmed accommodation.

  • Where should I fly to in Japan?

    Japan is an island state and many major cities have their own airport, so your choice of airport will depend on your travel itinerary. As the majority of international flights arrive at one of Tokyo's international airports, the capital might be the perfect starting point for your journey. You can either catch a connecting flight to other regions of the country or travel onwards by rail as Japan has an extremely well-developed railway network, including the Shinkansen high-speed bullet trains which conveniently connect major cities in Japan.

  • I want to visit Mount Fuji and the Five Lakes region. Where should I fly into?

    The Five Lakes region is located in Yamanashi prefecture and is easily accessible from Tokyo. As the region is to the east of Tokyo, Haneda Airport is slightly closer and provides an easier and faster access to the busses or trains that depart from Shinjuku station and take you to Kawaguchiko, the closest station to Mount Fuji. If you prefer to fly to Narita International Airport in Tokyo, you can catch the Narita Express train which also goes to Kawaguchiko.

  • How long is the flight to Japan?

    An average direct flight from Canada to Japan takes 17h 40m, covering a distance of 15124 km. The most popular route is Vancouver - Tokyo with an average flight time of 9h 40m.

  • What is the cheapest flight to Japan?

    The cheapest ticket to Japan from Canada found in the last 72 hours was C$ 400 one-way, and C$ 869 round-trip. The most popular route is Vancouver Intl to Tokyo Narita and the cheapest round-trip airline ticket found on this route in the last 72 hours was C$ 869.

  • Which airlines fly to Japan?

    Air Canada, ANA & WestJet fly the most frequently from Canada to Japan. The most popular route is from Vancouver to Tokyo, and American Airlines, Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines fly this route the most.

  • What are the most popular destinations in Japan?

    Based on KAYAK flight searches, the most popular destination is Tokyo (91% of total searches to Japan). The next most popular destinations are Osaka (8%) and Fukuoka (0.2%). Searches for flights to Okinawa (0.2%), to Sapporo (0.2%) and to Okayama (0.1%) are also popular.

  • How does KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool help me choose the right time to buy?

    KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to Japan

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Japan flight deals.
  • Narita International Airport (NRT) is where a lot of flights to Japan land. Narita International Airport is a great site to land if you indent to explore some additional adjacent cities in Japan from the nation's capital, such as Shisui, Yachimata, and Sakura.
  • Despite the fact that many airports, like Kansai International Airport (KIX) and Fukuoka Airport (FUK), provide international flights to the country from Canada, the bulk of business passengers to Japan prefer to fly into NRT Airport. NRT Airport is a popular choice for visitors on business visits because of its closeness to Tokyo, which is home to the majority of business headquarters in Japan.
  • Tokyo Narita Airport to Shiodome City Centre transportation options include train, bus, taxi, vehicle, shuttle, and towncar, among others. Bus travel from Tokyo Narita Airport to Shiodome City Centre costs the least but takes the most time—57 minutes—while cab travel from Tokyo Narita Airport to Shiodome City Centre costs more but takes little time—37 minutes.
  • Japan is famous for its cherry blossom season, which occurs in major cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka at the end of April or the beginning of May. Be aware that airfares tend to rise sharply during this period.
  • "Golden Week" is a cluster of 4 national holidays that occur at the end of April, lasting until the beginning of May. As many Japanese nationals take a vacation during this period, domestic airfares and train tickets tend to increase in price at this time.
  • If you are planning to travel to several destinations within Japan, consider purchasing a Japan Rail Pass which will give you unlimited access to the bullet trains as well as many busses, subways and ferries. We recommend you purchase it prior to your departure.
  • To visit the beaches of Okinawa, you could skip Tokyo altogether as carriers such as Cathay Pacific and EVA Air offer one-stop flights to Naha Airport (OKA), from both Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
  • Fukuoka International Airport (FUK) is the most convenient airport if you want to explore Kyushu, Japan's third largest island.

I loved the Star Wars theme! Hearing C-3P0, R2-D2, and BB-8 was comforting and fun!

ANA was wonderful just needed to upgrade the food and the entertainment.

Traveling with family should be sitted together. On our connecting flight we were all scattered.

The crew was so accommodating. If I asked for extra snack they gave it to me. In economy the seats were wide and plenty of legroom. The backrest should have reclined a little more. Instead it barely moved. The footrest was helpful. Overall, my experience was good and I would recommend ANA as an alternative to other oversees low-cost airlines.

excellent, the food was excellent and delicious, and the crew were very helpful and accommodating. thank you very much

Excellent. All the ticket prices have gone up so much. With only economy as the option, I thought I better pay for a good airline and I am glad I took ANA. The only thing is the long layover at Hanaeda enroute to Singapore. Any chance to bring back the service to land at Narita instead for the transit and a shorter layover will be fantastic. I am a fan of ANA.

Good. Got me there and back safely and mostly on time. 30 min delay for maintenance once but that means more time for nap. Crew was super nice.

Incredible. Amazing legroom. Over head fans for each person. Tv screens were great. Headphones were adequate. Seats were comfortable and spacious. Loved it.

The space for the seats i like it. Its not too close like other air line. The food is ok and also the staff. I'm waiting for my flight rewards point because until now i didn't recieved it.

The staff, ground and air, at ANA was very helpful and friendly during check in, boarding and during the flight. This is the reason why I always fly ANA whenever I go to Manila. The food was not the best but the flight crew more than makes up for the shortfall.

Wonderful service from timely boarding, to attentive crew, food service, my seat was very comfy, no complaints at all!

I think they can improve on the check in process and seat arrangement for family with minor. Waited in line for a hour. When at the check counter, the lady just took our passports and disappeared for an hour. We were panic of missing the flights and had to look for her. They placed my younger daughter by herself at the back of the plane while I am in the middle of the plane.

Enjoyed all.. clean and FAs are very nice. Will most likely book again in the future.

Overall mediocre-good, with the service on the flight operated by American Airlines being subpar and not the kind and standard you’d get from a Japan Airlines crew. The majority of the stewards on AA were not as gentle and friendly as those from Japan Airlines. Japan Airlines were more attentive to detail and your flight experience. AA was more interested in completing their tasks.

Very pleasant, look forward to flying with JAL again if the price is right.

I was feeling very comfortable throughout the flight. I got more leg room than I expected from a Y class seat. But the food was a little disappointing.

The food was not that good. I liked the miso, green tea, and ice cream. I wasn’t able to put my carry on bag under the seat in front of me. The flight was smooth. Please expand your choices of movies especially the new ones. I can’t choose any of those films. They’re old.

I like the braised beef., miso soup,, and green tea. Very little choices of hollywood movies. The PA announcement in English was not very clear and very soft. I could hardly hear.

More updated movies & Chinese movies. The food sometimes overcooked. Prefer to have more neat snacks in between than just choose from the menu. Please change the menu every now and then. This is my second time flying within one year and the menu didn’t change at all!

Food is lagging. Very poor choice. Like vending machine fast food.

Comfortable seats and lucky no one was in middle seat. No water on the plane. Plane was on time and staff was fast.

You get what you pay for and nothing more. Wanted a cheap flight and that’s exactly what I got, though it’s human nature to wanting to feel like you got a good deal as well. There was none of that here. I was cheap and they were too. Got to my destination safely and that’s all that really matters.

Nice service. I wish it could provide hot water on the flight.

internet didn't work. No offer of drinks or snacks.

Flight was seamless. Free wifi helped pass the time. Food was okay, just make sure you pre order or pick something up from the airport

Internet connection very poor, means you can not even order items through their own shop.

Paid for business class lay flat seat. Significantly less comfortable than other carriers. No built in entertainment or WiFi. I barely saw flight attendants at all and they wanted to charge me for a bottle of water if i wanted more than what came with the meal (that i also paid extra for). Essentially you’re just paying for a slightly more comfortable seat than the rest of the plane and nothing else

Een prijsvechter, dus dat moet je ook verwachten. Voor alles moet je betalen. We hebben vooraf een maaltijd en een amenitiesset besteld. Die kregen we netjes uitgereikt aan boord. Het is BYOD voor het amusement tijdens de vlucht en dit werkte uitstekend. Geen trage wifi, helemaal niet. Alles kost geld, zelfs een flesje water. Misschien op langere vluchten wel gratis water, thee, koffie. Maar daarentegen mag je na de security je lege drinkflessen gewoon vullen en mee aan boord nemen

Wifi could have been better. Arrived 55 mins earlier than scheduled :)

Best part are two crying babies throughout the whole 11 hour trip

I missed having the television screens to watch on the back of the seat in front of me. Air Canada flights supply these tvs on each seat and I really appreciate that service.

I booked through westjet. The first flight left late and cost us the connection to the second flight. The second flight after a 4 hour delay was again late because they were short an attendant. Then a door malfunctioned on the plane which led to yet another plane. So by the time we left Calgary we missed the BC ferry and had to pay a charge to get a later one. It ended up being a 24 hour day. That wrecked our first day and part of the second day in BC because we were so overtired.

Nothing. They are a perfect second hand airline for Southwest Airlines. Very tired planes.

Took 45 minutes to check into the flight as their web page keys crashing and was unbelievably show. First flight was cancelled at 10pm the night before a 6:30amd flight and I got a text saying they'd rescheduled me for *2 days later*. Given the trip was for meetings that didn't work so I spent over an hour and a half on hold and on the phone rescheduling. They tell me to check in online while on the phone. It crashes repeatedly. I can't check in. They say, "that happens, it'll probably be ok". Woke up to find the 2nd flight was delayed due to "lack of crew availability" enough that I'd miss my connection (30 minutes to change terminals, go through security and customs). Another 1.5 hours on hold and taking to support when I hear, "I think I have a solution" just before I get hung up on. Call back, another 45 minutes on hold. Previous agent had left no notes so had to start from scratch. Another hour and 45 on the phone. Only flights they could offer involved a 5 hour layover, get into LAX (not my destination) atfter 10pm, then find one of their agents to geta voucher for a hotel (they won't issue vouchers until you land), get to hotel, get about 4 hours sleep, catch a 6am flight to my destination. I gave up and cancelled. Never got to take my trip but spent well over 4 hours on their website and in the phone trying to sort out non-weather, fully in their control problems.

A group of a family sat behind me. I think up to 8 people? Constantly talking and making noises. Stewardess did nothing at all to make them stop. Told the Stewardess and they said they'll handle it but they didn't 🙄. Food sucked too.

Terrible. Passengers were loud and stewardess did nothing about it. They didn't show us the safety precautions like how they were suppose to, in the beginning before taking off.

Don’t actually know how this flight would have been since we missed it.

Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection.

Our seats that I had paid extra for near the front of the aircraft were no longer available on this replacement aircraft. We were told we either had to accept the new replacement seats in row 27 near the back in seats E and B, no longer together, or sit in the very back in row 30 squeezed into E and F seats that do not recline or have trays that provide a flat platform for a refreshment. This is not what I had expected. However, again your flight crew did the best they could given the circumstances.

Our flight was delayed 3.5 hours. Maybe next time make sure its on time as stated. The crew did the best they could, given the circumstances.

The flight was alright but the most annoying thing was my baggage was “misplaced”. Taken forever to get an idea when it would be located. Baggage claims personnel is some call center in India. Good luck trying to decipher what they tell you. 3 different people told me 3 different answers from wait a bit longer but had already waited 45 mins. Another response was the baggage didn’t make it to the connection. (This was true). Another response was “we will deliver it to you”. Ended up picking it up. Very frustrating experience!

Flight delayed, Poor communication. Uncomfortable/cramped gate area. Insistence by AC staff that our carry-on bags had to be checked due to allegedly small size of overhead bins (not true, as we saw when we boarded). Awful-tasting snacks.

Late departure, gate changed, gate far from the arrival point, seat belt signs on the entire flight, poor experience going through customs (will be filing a complaint regarding this item. Passenger was segregated for no reason on a security check. Check did not find anything wrong, broke lock attached to luggage, didn't allow the passenger to call the other passenger to open the luggage whom it belonged to for the code until after they broke external lock, & threatened them with trouble if brought anything in again).

We were held in customs while someone was checking on all.passengers on flight. We were released with very little time to get to our gate! Very frustrating!

Everything was going well until we disembarked in Dallas. A bit of a wait getting acess to disembark from the plane. But the worst was getting luggage from the baggage claim area. All passengers waited over one hour before bags began to make way to claim area. To make matters worse no airline staff informed us of what the delay was. Many tried to call the air line customer service number to no avail. It was late at night with most the airport shut down. Bad way to end a trip.

I was treated poorly after contacting customer service, including invasive security enhancements and being waitlisted suddenly for a flight I’d bought over a month prior. I interpret this treatment as intentional.

Great staff. Economy flight so we had to pay for everything, even water and snacks

I Teall staff was great and helpful and communicated needs and special care for my granddaughters and family as well as others. Well done

Delayed twice, and as always, planes are cramped and too crowded, for the high price of a ticket, air travel in Canada is horrible service and value.

Small commuter plane but relatively comfortable. Seats are old, Crew was courteous.
