Choosing Your Flight to Japan
If you are fancy about Japan from the start, JAL, the Japanese flag company and ANA, the other great Japanese airline company, connect the land of the rising sun with almost any country of the world.
Of course, you can choose other valid alternatives, such as Middle East companies, from Turkish, China Southern Airlines, Emirates, Qatar, or others like Delta, American or United Airlines (and many other ones).
Once arrived at destination, Japanese airlines offer foreigners or, in any case, Japanese resident abroad various advantageous solutions for purchasing domestic flights throughout Japan, for example toward the hot waters of Okinawa or the wild Hokkaido.
Remember, always book a ticket in advance to save money and eliminate any chances of missing a flight on the travel day.
