comcast-wifiAny foreign tourist who have gone to Japan before would know just what a clean country it is, not to mention having great customer service most of the time, never mind the fact that most folks there do not happen to be able to speak English. In terms of free Wi-Fi, that too, can be a challenge, as it is not common to find free Wi-Fi in public areas. Perhaps that is because just about everyone runs on a data plan, so there really isn’t any need for free Wi-Fi. However, tourists would find such a service to be a boon, and there is a new program from NTT that intends to deliver free Wi-Fi for foreign tourists.

Basically, foreign tourists who touch down at a Japanese airport will be able to show off their passport in order to register for a Wi-Fi card. This Wi-Fi card will then allow one to enjoyfree Wi-Fi coverage across 45,000 hot spots throughout the entire eastern Japan, including the likes of Tokyo, Hakone, Mt. Fuji, Yokohama, Nagano, Nikko, Kusatsu, Tohoku, Hokkaido and Fukushima. Apart from that, before you arrive in Japan, how about downloading the NAVITIME for Japan Travel app on iOS or Android? This app will serve up an augmented reality mode which will depict a Street View-style image of the location whenever there is an available Wi-Fi hotspot. This free Wi-Fi access is good for two weeks.
