(Japan website) Best domestic fares for premium points?

I thought I finally understood all the critical details to ANA flights, AMC status, points, miles, benefits etc... then I started looking at the Japan version of the ANA website There are so many fare types of domestic fares! And special sales etc.

In terms of earning premium points to keep up AMC status next year, any tips for lowest cost/point fares? Especially for Premium Class? I saw some old post referring to 40,000 yen r/t HND-OKA Premium seats, but lots of random searches for 2019 dates I don't see anything close to that price.

You might have just missed out on the booking window. I think the discounted tickets (super value premium 28, etc.) for Q1 2019 went on sale on August 26, and a lot of people snapped up the cheap fare buckets on the lucrative HND-OKA route immediately. I suggest staying apprised of when discount tickets for subsequent quarters will go on sale and standing by to grab the best fares.

Thanks. For those based outside Japan, is the best way just to watch the Japan version of the website?

As it is, yes.
Also, set up google flights track alerts for domestic flights you might be interested in. A drop in price implies the lucrative fare buckets have availability (due to early birds canceling etc.)
