Japan Airlines (JAL) has launched an award ticket promotion for economy award on US Airways between June 17 and October 3, 2014.
The discount varies between 5,000 to 10,000 miles depending of the total distance of your trip.
You can access JAL’s web page for this offer here.

So, visiting this four cities on US Airways flights would only cost you 10,000 JAL miles. Because the flights are intra-US ones, there are no nasty YQ’s (fuel surcharges either).
