Traveling to Japan - You need WiFi

Also please be aware that to get a access account to wi-fi should be done in advance. If you arrive at a Starbucks you cannot get access unless you registered in ADVANCE!

Is it the same coffee? I will let you know

Not sure yet but Boingo may be a good choice!


The number of Wi-Fi spots and connection options continue to increase as service providers make it easier for tourists to connect while travelling in Japan.
The Osaka Government Tourism Bureau provides "Osaka Free Wi-Fi", a convenient internet service that tourists can use on their smartphones and tablets. The service is available in a number of tourist destinations across the city, from Kansai International Airport to hotels and restaurants. Users also have access to the free Osaka Enjoy Rally service that provides access to rewards and benefits at participating retailers through coupons won in free online games. Find out more on the Osaka Tourist Guide website.

In cooperation with New Chitose Airport, Wi-Ho® and TelecomSquare have joined forces to launch their Hokkaido Spring Festival Campaign. For only JPY 888 a day, you can connect up to 10 devices simultaneously through a mobile Wi-Fi router. The router is a portable Wi-Fi base station, allowing you to connect smartphones and tablets on the road or in your hotel. Pick up your device at New Chitose Airport to qualify for the discount. For more information, visit TelecomSquare's website.

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone East Corporation (NTT East) and NAVITIME JAPAN Co., Ltd. have launched "Free Wi-Fi Spot Search," a convenient offline feature in the NAVITIME for Japan Travel app. In addition to signing up for NTT East's free 2-week Wi-Fi service, users will now also be able to search for nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, including information on the name, address, and telephone number of the hotspot location.
