For taking any international carrier, there is ANA’s Visit Japan Fare and JAL has its version, called a Welcome to Japan ticket.

All of them have blackout dates but follow the international baggage rules and cost less than half the normal air fare.

In response to many questions that are repeated over and over (and over…) from people online and Usenet Newbies, here is a list of answers to some of the most common questions regarding visiting and living in Japan.

Up to now there have been mountains of books from ivory-tower academics praising Japan to the skies, and websites about places to see, etc.

In many cases you are limited to 2 suitcases (usual max wt.

23kg or 50 lbs each, but your airline my vary) and one hand carry with a max limit of 115 cm (45 inches) (55x35x25cm) and 10 kg (I’ve never seen any hand carry actually getting weighed though).

but no real source of information on getting by here.

The information here is current as of January 2012 but be aware that prices, regulations, exchange rates, etc. Also be warned that while most procedures presented here are immutable, in some situations things may be decided on a case-by-case basis.

You must also have a round trip or onward ticket and the passes can only be bought outside of Japan before the start of the international trip.

ANA also has an Experience Japan Fare with no blackout dates but 20kg total bag limit and no refund or date change possibility. In more recent years there are also now discount carriers like Peach, Jetstar Japan, Vanilla Air, Skymark, Solaseed, Starflyer and Air-Do.

Excess baggage is charged at a piece-rate system, for example -60 extra if between 50-70lbs), or 0-150 per extra suitcase if not overweight or oversize. Bringing very heavy or bulky bags may require your airline’s approval first – be sure to see your airline’s website.
