Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest airfare from L.A. to Tokyo starts from $919 with taxes for travel in late August (Korean Air). Add to that $606 per person, including tax, for five nights at the Hilton Tokyo Hotel, and you'd be paying $1,525 for airfare and accommodations alone. For just $29 more than that, this package covers the flight, five nights' accommodations, a half-day tour, all transfers, and all taxes and fees.
More Additional activities are available for a fee, including a full-day motor coach trip to Nikko National Park for $140 per person, or a full-day trip by bullet train to Mt. Fuji and Lake Hakone in Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park for $160 per person. Extend your stay at Hilton Tokyo Hotel from $100 per person per night, based on double occupancy.
