Telephone: Country Code:

Credit cards can be used directly in some phone boxes, although public phones are becoming increasingly difficult to find and are most likely to be located near train stations. They are green and grey, and accept coins and magnetic prepaid cards, available from convenience stories and vending machines.

Mobile Telephone:

Most modern phone handsets will work in Japan, but roaming charges can be steep - check with your service provider as some will offer reasonable data packages to cover your stay. If you have a smartphone, you can keep in touch using Wi-Fi only. Visitors can hire handsets at the airport from companies such as DoCoMo (www.nttdocomo.com), and Softbank (www.softbank-rental.jp). In the UK, phones can be rented in advance of travel from Adam Phones (www.adamphones.com). Coverage is generally good.


Wi-Fi is widely available throughout Japan, and is free in many hotels and via hotspots in major cities and airports. Alternatively, there are many internet cafés located in Tokyo and other main cities.

Asahi Shimbun also publishes an English version (http://www.asahi.com/ajw).
