Flight Deal: United from D.C., $872

It's advertised as a fare of $714, but they estimate another $158 in taxes, fees and the fuel surcharge.  That price is good for flights all summer long, and after August 31 prices go up higher. 

The summer's shaping up to be a cheap one for vacations to Japan, and cheap nonstop flights are a bonus.  As the Konnichiwhoa Guide says:

The fewer layovers you have, the fewer times you have to have your
luggage inspected, take off your shoes, show people your tickets and
passport, stop to eat expensive airport food, and turn your iPod off
then on again.  Plus, it's a shorter trip, and who doesn't love that?

If you're a more experienced traveler, there are also deals for flights to Osaka and Nagoya, too.  But be quick – the deal expires this Friday, May 15.  Get the details and make reservations at H.I.S. Travel.
