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

Edmonton to Tokyo or Osaka / Kyoto, Japan - $479 to $662 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Osaka Kyoto, Japan

United Airlines has dropped the price of their flights from Edmonton to Tokyo and Osaka, Japan down to between $646 and $662 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

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.

Update 11/28 @ 6 PM MST - Cheap flights from Edmonton to Tokyo and Osaka are back! This time with United & ANA, and for $479 CAD roundtrip!! Dates in January, February, early March 2020. Start with the Google Flights links below.

You can also look at flying into Tokyo or Osaka, but home from a different airport in Japan.

For example, Edmonton to Tokyo, and then Sapporo (CTS) to Edmonton. The Sapporo Snow Festival is from Jan 30 to Feb 11.

Sapporo (CTS) or Asahikawa (AKJ) are the airports you want to focus on if you're interesting in skiing / snowboarding the legendary powder of Hokkaido.

Here is a map of all the major airports in Japan, and what's around them.

Availability for travel

January, February, April, late September, October 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.

How to find and book this deal

1. Try the following Google Flights search:

Google Flights: Edmonton to Tokyo, Japan

Google Flights: Edmonton to Osaka, Japan

Google Flights: Edmonton to Tokyo, and then Sapporo to Edmonton

- click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and browse for cheap date combinations

- look for the dates that are between $479 and $670 CAD roundtrip.

TIP #1: Look for the flights where the overseas legs are operated by ANA instead of United, whenever possible.

TIP #2: Tokyo's Haneda (HND) airport is the one that's close to downtown Tokyo. Narita (NRT) airport is an hour's train ride away.

- NOTE: These don't work when you click through from Google Flights to Expedia (the price jumps). I've had luck with clicking through to other booking sites. You may also want to try searching for the same destination and dates on Flighthub or Kayak.

- If you try the same destination and dates on Skyscanner you can book them for $464 CAD roundtrip.

    I have searched multiple websites as you instructed but can’t seem to find anything under $950. Is this deal over?

    Unfortunately, after hanging around since November 28th, these disappeared last night. I'll update if they return.
