Cheap Flights from Toronto to Tokyo
Departing from Toronto
Cheap flights from Toronto to Tokyo depart from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), which is about thirty kilometers from downtown Toronto. There is ample parking at the airport for travelers arriving by car, while public transportation options from the city centre include the Union Pearson Express train and Toronto Transit Commission city buses. Because Toronto Pearson International Airport is one of the country's busiest airports, ensure that your arrival time allows you to check in at least two hours before your flight to Tokyo is scheduled to depart.
Through its partnership with ANA (All Nippon Airlines), Air Canada flies direct from Toronto to both of Tokyo’s major airports. It also offers flights with connections at major Canadian airports, including Vancouver International Airport and Calgary International Airport. If no Air Canada flights suit your budget or schedule, consider flying with Delta and connecting through Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport (MSP) or Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW).
Direct flights from Toronto to Tokyo depart from Toronto Pearson International Airport's Terminal 1. This terminal features a number of art exhibits, shopping and dining options at every price point, and essential travel services like ATMs and a currency exchange office.
Arriving in Tokyo
Tokyo has two major international airports: Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT) and Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND). Flights from Toronto land at both airports, so be careful when booking your flights (especially if you plan to connect to a further destination upon arrival in Tokyo). Both airports have car rental services, currency exchange offices, ATMs and banks where you can exchange or withdraw Japanese yen upon arrival. In addition to needing a valid passport to enter Japan, you may also need to show it at the bank or currency exchange office.
From Tokyo Narita Airport, the fastest way to reach the city center is with the private Keisei rail connection that departs from Terminal 2. Travel time on this train is approximately forty minutes. If you have a lot of luggage, the slower, more spacious Airport Limousine shuttle bus services will be more comfortable, but your travel time could be up to two hours.
From Tokyo Haneda Airport, the Tokyo Monorail is the best way to reach the city center and to connect onwards to the local subway network. The journey to Hamamatsucho station takes less than fifteen minutes and monorail passes can be purchased at the Travel Service Center in the airport's International Terminal. Airport Limousine shuttle buses and private taxis are also available at Haneda.
What to Expect in Tokyo
Like Toronto, Tokyo is a major international capital and a hub of business, government and culture. However, the two cities have a number of differences:
- Tokyo experiences more humidity than Toronto, and temperatures rarely dip below zero. Leave your parka and snow boots at home, and instead pack lots of light layers, a waterproof jacket and water-resistant walking shoes.
- Tokyo is thirteen hours ahead of Toronto. This means that when it is 6:00 pm in Tokyo, it is 5:00 am in Toronto.
- Dining and entertainment tend to be more expensive in Tokyo. A typical restaurant meal costs about 2000 yen ($24 CAD), though deals can be had on set menus and takeaway bento boxes. Tickets to a movie can be equally expensive, with prices beginning around 1,800 yen ($21 CAD).
- Outside of tourist areas, you may not find signs (including prices and menus) translated into English. Consider adding a translation app to your phone so that you can understand what people are saying, and be understood yourself!
