Good news is it shouldn't cost too much with cheaper flights predicted and Japan is actually a place you can travel around on a budget quite cheaply :)

    Thanks Mr.R.M., the end of March is a great time to visit Japan and you should hopefully be able to catch the famous cherry blossoms. The weather depends on which part of Japan you plan to visit. Places like Tokyo and Kyoto will be mild with temperatures of around 12-15C during the day :)
