3Don't know the prices, but there was a blurb in the news today that JAL is starting Boston-Narita (Tokyo) flights this month:

4General rules of thumb for travelling cheaply include
- being flexible about the date (some days of the week tend to be more expensive than others)
- being flexible about the season (travel out of the peaks)
- being flexible about the route (indirect flights can be cheaper but longer)
- booking a long way in advance (not always true but often).
- checking prices from different places.
- sticking with the same carrier to get flying miles - (often not worth it for infrequent travellers).

7I have been looking at airfare options for travel from Salt Lake City to Tokyo in August recently. Here are some of the tips I have found:
www.airfarewatchdog.com is a good site that will alert you when certain routes come down in price. Lately it seems that airlines are running sales on tickets about 3-4 months in advance. Not certain of what they will do for summer fares but I may wait until May to see if fares come down a bit.
The most useful site for me so far has been Orbitz. The site has an option where you can see all fares plus or minus 3 days from your selected dates so you can get a good feel for which days have higher fares (I found a big difference).
Also, you might want to try to split your trip into two different segments. I have found LAX to Tokyo Narita to be the least expensive trans Pacific route from where I live. You might want to try Chicago or Denver.
