Thanks. I need to stop in Tokyo though for work/friend stuff. Moreso on the way back but need 2 nights pre Hokkaido too. Was mainly wondering if there's some regional cheapo airline that isn't in the main travel search engines. I just found some sites about it (peach, jetstar etc) and will check them out. It's just a headache to figure out which ones have the best deals for bags, etc. Maybe some australian dude who does it all the time knows the best one.
