JAL Vacations

Does anyone have any experience booking with JAL Vacations? I know AAVacations has some interesting nuances and I was able to book a J fare to Europe with them for ~$1k a few months ago. Hoping there are similar deal opportunities w/ JAL Vacations. Thank you.

I have no experience with JAL vacation from the US, nor JALPAK from Japan. But looking at the US website,, it seems to be package tours (much like from Japan) with hotels and programs included. Some of them do look rather interesting, if looking for a package to Japan.

I have no experience either. Saw this PR recently (cannot find an English version):

https://press.jal.co.jp/ja/release/201912/005417.html

It says JL is expanding its vacation program "Japan Airlines Vacations" to US/Canada as of Sep 30/Oct 31 of 2019, so I believe it's a new thing.

I tried searching a few simple round trips in J from LAX/SAN to TYO but prices don't look very appealing to me. Amex IAP + separate hotel would be cheaper. Maybe I need to search more.
