cup noodle museum!! this flight is only $20 less than flying into Tokyo first but if you prefer to fly into Tokyo first, the round trip airfare is $647.

These are main cabin regular economy fares that include a personal item, a carry-on bag, a checked bag, seat selection and free change (fare difference applies).

Departs LAX: Feb 2-20, 22-29; March 1-5

japan is the best
A flight to Osaka at this price??? Wow this is a slickdeal. Basically saves you a $120 bullet train ride to Osaka. A lot of people are unaware that the JR pass has doubled in prices making super hard to break even on the pass. This saves you some money and time.

You might say well there is a layover. I say that gives me time to eat all the cheap yummy foods at the 7/11 and airport.

EDIT: someone in the comments said they found a flight that goes from LAX to HND to NRT to ITM.
Make sure you check the flight before buying. This is not ideal.

Ideal would be LAX to HND to ITM
double in price JPY, yes.
but with the current exchange rate it is closer to ~$350 USD

what I never really liked about the JR Pass was that it limited you to the slower trains, so instead of sub-2 hours Osaka/Tokyo it was 2.5-3 hours and a more limited train schedule.

so instead of being able to get to Kyoto by 8AM from Tokyo you're stuck getting there a later point in the morning. can't do day trips as easily.

before when it was ~$250 USD the rail pass would be worth it if you were going to do at least 1 single Tokyo/Osaka RT on the bullet train AND you were going to take the Narita Express AND you were going to take mostly JR surface rail.

I used it once in 2017, and quickly realized it was not useful for getting around Tokyo, as a lot of places are either accessible only via Tokyo Metro/Toei Subway, or you have to constantly transfer between different lines.

the money "saved" was not worth the extra time getting around the stations, especially when some JR to subway exits are opposite of where the ticket offices are for you to exit from when you have the JR pass.

for those wondering: round trip between Tokyo and Osaka is JPY 14,000 one way, about $100 USD. that's if you book the ticket last minute at the station or online via Smart EX.

zero point using the rail pass unless you're trying to see all of Japan by train within a very short period of time.
