ANA offers the option to add on a multi-day stopover in Tokyo for around $100 more. If you'd like to break up your trip and also see a bit of Tokyo on your way to or from Southeast Asia, this can be a great way to enjoy a 2-for-1 trip.
Planning on seeing more than one place in Southeast Asia? Look into a multi-city search when booking and you may be able to fly into one location and back from another for a similar fare. Booking a separate one-way flight within Southeast Asia is pretty much always cheap.
