I am trying to buy some domestic tickets (mostly NRT-ITM/KIX) within Japan and am getting quoted outrageous amounts. Cheapest I found was USD 300+. If I need to buy a ticket and not use some Japan Pass option, where should I look?

Thanks,
A.

Well, if you are already in Japan I would visit any travel agency. I once booked tickets online with ANA http://www.ana.co.jp but I think it should be also possible with JAL http://www.jal.co.jp on their English website.

Otherwise if you intend to buy a full fare ticket (300 USD+) you might get the ticket any any IATA agency, even in Venezuela.

NRT-ITM and NRT-KIX are not heavily flown routes. It's all HND. At least with JL and NH. There's a couple ITM-NRT routes to connect to NRT international departures.

First of all there is no such flight as NRT-KIX. NRT-ITM is only flown three daily (NH-763ERx1, CRJx1; JL-773ERx1). With the recent downsizing of equipment the number of discount priced tickets may have gone down.

Your best bet is as mentioned by Swissgabe.

I doubt you will find anything cheaper than that. US$300 is not that outrageous. By the way, which dates are you flying? If its around Golden Week or other holiday periods grab the US$300 ticket right now before it disappears.

WOW! I have been spoilt by low fares everywhere I go  Smile.

Thanks all,

Quoting Carpethead (Reply 3):

I didn't think so as I couldn't find anything, but not being from Japan, I didn't want to state that for sure.

Is there a government mandate that prevents such a flight? I can't imagine there isn't at least some need for a connection between the two.

Ya, I am curious as well. I am trying to get my dad to go from NRT to ITM because he needs to go to Osaka and was surprised at the lack of domestic connectivity.
