Published on 04.28.2016 You are traveling in Japan and obviously you want to share your experiences with your friends, however I have to personally admit that the Wi-Fi situation in Japan can be problematic. Although most hotels have a good Wi-Fi connection, you most probably need a connection when you’re out and about, don’t you? You want to share the immediate experience, check information on the net or find your way on a map, but if you can’t find a good hotspot, you can feel totally lost!
Renting a pocket Wi-Fi is the most stress-free way to prevent you from becoming a net refugee, especially if you want to connect a couple of devices, such as your phone and tablet, or all your family’s devices. It’s quite small, just a little bit bulkier than a credit card, so you can bring it with you easily.
Buying a SIM card for foreign travellers is another solution. You can find them in large electronics retailers. Check if your mobile phone is compatible to the SIM card before buying it. Note that these SIM cards are data only and don’t allow you to make phone calls. Be careful as some need a confirmation call from a registered Japanese phone number, though products aimed for foreign tourists largely don’t require this.
If you prefer free Wi-Fi, there are several providers.
[Free Wi-Fi Passport]

Japan’s mobile network provider Softbank allows foreign travellers to use their hotspots at restaurants, cafes, major train stations, hotels and other locations for 2 weeks. All you need is to ring the toll-free dedicated number and get a password. When you find one of their hotspots, connect to it by tapping your phone number and the password.
*In order to use FREE Wi-Fi PASSPORT, you must have a Global Roaming contract. For details, please check with the network operator you have a contract with in your country.
*This service may not be available, or charges may apply, depending on your network operator.

Japan’s major telecommunication company NTT West provides foreign travelers with their hotspots in many touristic places, shops, restaurants and stations for 2 weeks. Download their App ‘NAVITIME for Japan travel’ to your phone your visit to Japan. The ID and password is valid for 90 days. If you can’t manage to get the app in time, you can get an ID and password at the information desk at Haneda and Narita airport.
*Free Wi-Fi hotspots are available only within NTT West service area which is Tokyo, Tokyo suburbs, Tohoku and Hokkaido area.
*This service may not be available, or charges may apply, depending on your network operator.
Free Wi-Fi at convenience stores
Seven-Eleven, Lawson and FamilyMart provide free Wi-Fi within their premises. They have time limits (20-60minutes) and only allow 3-5 times access per day, but handy if you just want to look up something. Seven-Eleven and FamilyMart require a one-time registration and a confirmation email, whereas Lawson require an email address registration only.
Free Wi-Fi at cafés and bars
Café chain Starbucks, Tully’s coffee, Ginza Renoir and McDonalds provide free Wi-Fi within their premises. Some of them even have power points to charge your device. English style pub chain HUB also provides free Wi-Fi.
*Not all branches provide free Wi-Fi. Check before ordering your drink. You might need to tap in a code to access. You can find the code on your table or receipt. Ask staff if you can’t find one.
