You can set a price watch with Google Flights to save yourself some of the work of periodically re-checking manually. If you have enough time or want a better fare, see if you can go from London to TPE or ICN and hop on a separately ticketed LCC from there to HND, NRT. KIX has several LCC flights if you were thinking of visiting Osaka/Kyoto.

Hotels also fill up more quickly around hanami season. It is usually possible to book six months out for JP business hotel chains with free cancellation.

I doubt the Olympics will cause less people to book for hanami in 2020. Foreign visitors have visited plenty without Olympics https://public.tableau.com/views/3_1...viz_share_link

Overseas Visitors might trend lower if China and HK are a bit uncertain and people less willing to spend more money
