i'm looking for cheap airfare to Japan and was wondering which online travel agencies are the best in terms of price? can any of you jetsetters help? i'm still checking out the bigger names like Expedia and a couple others but i'm open to suggestions.

sometimes I find the best bet may be to go to a Travel agent who specializes in the country you want to visit.

Is there a Japanese section in your city?? In Jersey there is this Japanese plaza/mall that used to be called Yaohan, (it's name is now something different). But there were Travel Agencies inside that ALWAYS had airfare for about $100-$200 cheaper to Japan than you could find elsewhere, and that sometimes included a hotel package.

Same goes with where I live now and aiirfare to say Poland...

This isn't always true, but it wouldnt hurt to look.

But for online airfare i usually check Orbitz first.

cheers, fellas. I've contacted a local travel agent that specializes in Japan airfare, hopefully they'll get back to me with a decent quote. so far the cheapest fare i've found online was $650 through American Airlines and the next one up is about $705 through NWA.

if you know anyone that reads japanese, a good place to look is in japanese newspapers. they are always advertising great deals from ny to japan. try daily sun.

If you are going to Japan you can use JTB.... you can get a flight for under $600 RT.

I don't get it. people on the east and west coast get better deals than those of us in the midwest. this fucking sucks! I need to peep those 4-consecutive day JR/Shinkansen passes too, they look like an excellent deal.

this is the travel agency my buddy edwin mentioned above. they have offices around the country. but definitely just shop around using the previous suggestions of looking in a 'japanese' newspaper (you don't really have to know how to read japanese, just look for the ads that have an airplane or a list of destinations) and visiting your local 'japan town' plus checking the big search engines and the airline websites.
