Reasons to visit Japan #2

There are so many reasons to visit Japan, and here’s another one: it’s just so cheap at the moment! 

I noticed a special offer on the Japan Travel Centre website today for an Air France London to Tokyo flight for just £529 return! KLM also appeared to be matching that price, with a whole host of other airlines also offering special deals to Japan.

At prices like that, it would be rude not to! 😉

If you’re considering a trip to Japan this year and you’re in London this weekend, why not pop along to the Destinations Travel Show at Earls Court. There will be a number of Japan and Asia travel experts there, able to advise you in planning and booking your trip. I’ll certainly be popping along to the Inside Japan Tours stand for a little chat, and I’m hoping to speak to the folks at the Into Japan Specialist Tours stand too.

On Thursday 2nd February there will be a talk called “Japan – Now, more than ever before” by David Lee of Into Japan Specialist Tours with special guest Michael Jay, and on Sunday 5th February there will be a talk called “There’s only one Japan: Inspirational experiences in the Land of the Rising Sun” by Maddy Rodell of Inside Japan Tours. Unfortunately I have to work on the Thursday, but I’m planning to attend on the Saturday and Sunday, so I will try to get lots of up-to-date information to share with you all (and to help me plan my next trip!).

The Times Destinations Travel & Holiday Show is on from Thursday 2nd February to Sunday 5th February at London’s Earls Court. For more information or to book tickets, please visit their website:

  1. Hi Haikugirl. Just want to add that Tim Anderson AKA. UK 2011 Masterchef winner will also be coming along to Destinations.He will be joining us and doing a cooking demo on the Taste the World stand showing off his skills and talking abou the Japan influence on his cooking and in his life. He use to live in Japan for a few years too! You can’t help but be massively influenced by Japan if you have been there eh!….Anyway, Tim will be there on Friday 3rd at 1pm.


  2. Unfortunately even though flights are cheaper everything else has gone up thanks to the exchange rate. Which means I won’t be able to go this year! I am glad I went a couple of years ago, sadly it’s simply out of my financial reach now. 😦
