Ginza Go-Go Fares

If you've got a yen to go to Japan in the near future, you may want to schedule your departure for the end of April or early May. While that may be too late to see the cherries bloom, it could also be your last chance for a good deal this side of summer.

American Airlines is having a mini-sale and nothing about these prices is lost in translation, so check out our list of very competitive fares from several dozens major airports and grab yours to go before they go the way of cherry blossoms.

From some cities, getting there in time for flower festivals will add less than the cost of Tokyo take-out to your ticket, and Northwest has its West Coast gateways awash in great non-stop fares like a month-long April shower of savings.
