Your London to Tokyo getaway awaits

A London to Tokyo adventure will bring you closer to a city that fascinates, astonishes and dazzles. The capital is at the very crux of Japan's balancing act between tradition and modernity. It's also an enormous city that spreads out over hundreds of square miles, and its sci-fi skyscrapers thrust out of a tangle of motorways and high-speed train lines. But the serene snow-clad form of Mount Fuji brings the whole chaotic and confused jumble to order. One thing is certain: there's no city on the planet quite like Tokyo.

When can I book cheap flights from London to Tokyo?

The cheapest time of the year to travel to the Japanese capital is January and February. If you're looking for a real bargain, try booking your London to Tokyo flights at least two to four months prior to departure. Saturday is typically the most expensive day of the week to travel, while Wednesday is the cheapest. If cost isn't an issue, try coming during in spring, when the hanami cherry-blossom viewing is in full swing, or in autumn, when the even more vivid colours flush Tokyo's parks.

Arriving at Heathrow airport

Heathrow, London’s busiest and most convenient airport, is generally the cheapest for flights to Tokyo. It's 15 miles from central London, and well serviced by the Heathrow Express direct train from London Paddington. A single fare will cost you about GBP 18.00. Alternatively, you can get to Heathrow by taxi for GBP 55, or by coach for as little as GBP 4.

Flying from London to Tokyo

Tokyo lies nearly 6,000 miles from London and direct London Tokyo flights still take almost 12 hours to get there. Mainstream carriers such as British Airways and Virgin Atlantic regularly ply this route with their premium offerings. But for cheaper options, try Air China, Etihad Airways or Turkish Airlines. Remember you'll need to adjust to an eight-hour time difference upon arrival.

Getting from the Narita airport to Tokyo city

Narita Airport (NRT) is the main destination for the cheapest London to Tokyo flights. It is pretty far out, at over 40 miles from Tokyo city centre. However, Narita is linked to the city by the Skyliner rail service, which speeds to Ueno station, and the Narita Express Limousine bus, which runs to Tokyo station. These cost about GBP 19 and GBP 11, respectively. You can also be taken directly to your hotel by a taxi for around GBP 13-15.

What to do when in Tokyo

Tokyo is a city that seems to clamour for attention everywhere you look. The 610-metre Tokyo Skytree offers fantastic panoramic vistas as far as the eye car see. But once come back down to earth, the temptations of modern Tokyo will completely surround you, and you’ll soon want to spend all your hard-earned money on a shopping spree in Ginza. Other adventures to be had in this Japanese city include the iconic Tokyo Tower and the sumo hall. But among the soaring modern towers are a few tranquil spots where you'll spot fragments of traditional Tokyo, such as the peaceful Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
