I was going to say! Still that's not all that bad, I reckon minus flights it could be quite cheap.

the cheapest i got flight last time was just over £500 and i only booked a few days before i went

but Japan is an expensive place, no £1 chicken and chip shops Sad, but i know there are some cheap hostels and hotels to be found

not sure how cheap can get everything for Lee, depends on how many days you planning to go for, it was £2000 for 9 days for me, but i picked a place a could get a bus from the airport to hotel easily

plus if traveling around,the Bullet Train is expensive, cost me £50 return for 1 gig to the another and it only took an hour and a bit

Oh yeah, going on the Shinkansen, it's about £15 to Nagoya from Osaka and about £26 from Nagoya to Tokyo.
I should be doing work.

What about getting the Trans-Seberian railway, any cheaper than flights? sure ryanair would be cheap to Moscow, then train it to Bejing then another cheap flight. Would be a mission in terms of number of days, but may work out cheaper?

Ryanair don't fly to Moscow, the Trans-Siberian doesn't go to China, and that would involve a haft of visa work; remember that China is a communist country and doesn't really enjoy folk just traipsing in when they feel like it.

Very annoyed that Kev's posted that. When I'm pissed next, I'll most likely try and book that.

It depends. Supply n demand an all that. People dont even need to book for it to change, if no one searches that flight on that date, itl drop. if loadsa people search it (even igf no one books) the price will go up, as the airline assumes demand is high for that date for whatever reason.

Its £472 today. For some reason, if you want to go to Japan and fly home the day you arrive, its nearly £3000. Iv no idea why 9I didnt search this, I just clicked the flexible dates button).

When i first searched my flights to Australia, i was like "thats fairly reasonable", when I booked it 3 weeks later the price had fallen by almost £100, similarly, it could have gone up by that.

jennie will be able to explain this better than me, being a travel agent (and one without fat calves as well)
