To Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia I've always paid around 70-80,000. That's flying out of Fukuoka, which seems to be the best place to fly out from where I am. You can fly direct from Hiroshima to Taiwan, Shanghai and Korea (and now Bangkok) but there are a lot more flights from Fukuoka.

My flight home at Christmas is probably gonna be about 150,000, though! Eek!

You can fly to South-East Asia for 40,000, but it's almost impossible to get! If you're doing it in peak season, you'll pay over 100,000. It varies a lot.
