It really varies. I live in San Diego, and I was able to score tickets out of LAX for $420 - which is insanely cheap. It would have cost twice that usually. Sign up for "Scott's Cheap Flights" and wait for a fare to pop up. Japan usually pops up once a month at least.What airport do you guys fly out of and how much does a round trip ticket cost? How long do you usually stay and how much do you spend?
I was really surprised how cheap Tokyo was - both food and alcohol. Yeah it can get pricey if you're going to the five star sushi places, but honestly even cheap sushi was as good or better than the shit in the states.I was just curious as to how much a vacation out there would cost. I live in Pittsburgh, so obviously flights will be much more. When I take vacations/road trips in the states, I have pretty much every activity and meal planned down to the minute, but I would be ok with just going to Tokyo and walking around and exploring. I never get to do that on trips anymore. I don't know if I would really buy anything besides food and drink.
