Dulcinea's Insight

  • Most international flights to Japan land at one of the following airports: Narita International Airport just outside of Tokyo, Kansai International Airport in Osaka, or Central Japan International Airport near Nagoya. Look for these when booking your flight.
  • Many Asian airlines, including Japan Airlines (JAL) and All Nippon Airways (ANA), are widely regarded by experienced travelers as luxurious when compared with their western counterparts. Traveling to Asia on an Asian airline also allows you to begin the experience the moment you lift off, with flight attendants, entertainment, and food from your point of destination.
