Extended: Free Hot Spring Experience With Purchase of Round-Trip Ticket
T hrough Thursday, October 1, 2015, you can access and experience an onsen — or hot spring spa — free of charge when you purchase a round-trip ticket for a flight on an airplane operated by Japan Airlines from San Francisco International Airport to Tokyo International Haneda Airport and are assigned a seat in either the first class, business class or premium economy class cabins; and transportation via shuttle bus, comfortable leisure wear, and a face or bath towel for your use at Natural Hot Spring Heiwajima is included at no extra charge.
Passengers seated in the economy class cabin may take advantage of a discounted offer of ¥1,700.00 — or approximately $14.16 — to access the facilities of Natural Hot Spring Heiwajima upon arrival. The onsen is located approximately 15 minutes from the airport and operates 24 hours per day.
As I first wrote in this article on Sunday, December 21, 2014, this offer was originally set to expire yesterday, April 1, 2014; but it has been extended to October 1.
The offer is valid until 6:00 in the evening on your day of arrival. Round trip travel must include flights JL001 and JL002; and tickets must be purchased in the United States. Please ensure to reserve your seat on the shuttle bus in advance, as the shuttle service may not be available without a reservation. Once your flights operated by Japan Airlines are purchased, reservations are accepted 30 days prior to — or up to 12 hours in advance of — your arrival.
Submit your original boarding pass at the counter at Natural Hot Spring Heiwajima to be admitted; and if you were hoping to allow someone else to enjoy the experience instead of you, you are out of luck, as boarding passes are not transferable.
