Free WiFi in Japan for travellers got Easier

BY IN 英語 NO COMMENTS YET

One of the most frustrating things about travelling in Japan has been the difficulties associated with communicating home. With 10+ million foreign tourists a year going to Japan, the pressure for change has had some effect.

Free WiFi in Japan for travellers  just got easier. There is now a free app (pc, iphone/ipad and Android phones) provided by Japan’s NTT broadband platform to help you connect to over 16,000 Wifi access points in Japan. ‘Japan Connected-free Wi-Fi’  is (app) makes it easier to access points located at Narita Airport, Haneda Airport, major JR East railway stations, Seven-Eleven stores, the Osaka free WiFi network and so many other places. You will need to log-in so that the app can help to take care of all these disparate WiFi providers in a reasonably seamless manner.

If you move out of the major centers you will still have connection issues (look for Seven-Eleven stores many will enable you to connect). This is not a cure all but for the traveller to Japan,  it is a significant step in the right direction.
