Nothing says gladly lost in translation better than Tokyo - a whirl of neon lights, winding alleys, crazy fashion and shopping as far as the eye can see. Tokyo is bursting with late-night karaoke bars, hole-in-the-wall noodle bars and arcade games. Visit temples and hang in city parks by day and be mesmerised by wacky culture and culinary adventures by night, followed by a nightcap of famous Japanese whisky (yes, it's Suntory time). Book your cheap flights to Tokyo with Student Flights and you'll have hundreds of Yen to spend at the 100 Yen Shop. And if you're under 26, a student or a teacher - endless sushi rolls of happiness! You'll be able to score Black Market Flights deals for even cheaper airfares!
Most international Japan flights land at Japan's second busiest airport, Narita International Airport. A word of warning, Narita is nearly 60 kilometres from Tokyo City so catching a cab will cost you an arm and a leg. Reaching Tokyo's CBD by the Narita Sky Access and the JR Line trains straight into Shibuya or Shinjuku is the sensible thing to do. For more information about the airlines that service Narita International Airport, see our airline guide.
Harajuku is a must for a taste of Japanese subculture at its finest. Head to Yoyogi Park and check out the mad skills of the rockabilly dancing Elvis impersonators, or hit up fashion central in Shibuya and pick up all kinds of weird and wonderful accessories to bling up your iPhone. Most tourist guides won't tell you about the neighbourhood suburb of Shimokitazawa - the perfect place for vintage shopping, dive bars, art shows and okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes)!
Springtime is spectacular in Japan as the country celebrates its cherry blossom season and says sayonara to winter with festivals and towns under pink petal-laden trees. Japan is always a good idea, but if you like to ski, we don't have to tell you about what great powder Japan gets every winter - take your Tokyo trip to the next level with a ski tour. Our cheap Japan ski holiday deals will have you knee-deep in snow in no time.
