Discount Air Tickets 2012/12/22 09:25
Hi there,

In the discount air tickets page (http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2364.html), it states that these are available to foreigners who fly in and out of Japan. My question is, what if I take the ferry into Japan from Korea? Am I still eligible for the cheaper tickets?

Thanks,
Jason

Jason,

Last month we flew from Tokyo to Sapporo for 3400 yens with Jetstar, a lot cheaper than what advertised at: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2364.html.
It is worth checking the airline directly for any discounted fare.

No particular ticket is advertised in the article. Jetstar is mentioned, without prices, as a low cost carrier.

Presumably what liem is trying to say is that a discount air pass is not always a most economical option because lower prices are set by LCC companies.

I think that's a truth, but please note that such a price is not always set for every passenger; a special price is applied only when all the conditions are met.

My question is, what if I take the ferry into Japan from Korea? Am I still eligible for the cheaper tickets?

It seems you are not.
I have read webpages (of www.ana.co.jp, ja.oneworld.com, www.jal.co.jp, www.staralliance.com) explaining these five air passes in English or Japanese; each of them states a condition like using an international flight to/via Japan.
I suppose such air passes are designed to boost traveling by air to Japan.
