The crack was discovered after a flight from Tokyo's Haneda airport to Matsuyama in the country's southwest and comes at the end of a week in which three other planes suffered problems, including a fire and a fuel leak.
Operator All Nippon Airways said the crack, in the window on the pilot's side of the cockpit, caused no problems for the 237 passengers and nine crew on board, but added that the return flight had been cancelled.
ANA said another Dreamliner flight, shuttling between Haneda and southern Miyazaki prefecture, experienced a delay due to an oil leak from a generator, rigged inside an engine.
