The best deals usually require you to plan ahead, and this one is no different. According to Scott’s Cheap Flights, now is the best time to book your flight to Japan for spring 2019, just in time to catch the cherry blossom season. To get the full effect of the cherry blossoms, try to travel between late March, when the trees in southern Japan start to bloom, and the end of May, when the blossoms come to northern cities like Sapporo.

Right now Air China, Philippine Airlines, and Singapore Airlines are all offering great discounted rates for under $800. By booking now, you can travel to Tokyo from New York City for $729, from Chicago and Las Vegas for just $760, and from other major cities for similarly low prices. Play around with the Google flights tool, find the dates that work for you, and take advantage of this limited deal.

Like most crazy cheap flight fares, this one isn’t going to last. Japan’s 2019 cherry blossom season might seem like a long time from now, but don’t wait too long, or you’ll miss out on these rare discounted fares.
