Last time, when I went to Japan, I didn’t rental a wifi mobile.
I wanted to try if I could survive without it because I was by myself.
I don’t need to worry for my husband who is non-Japanese speaker.
Once I got in Japan, I got text messages from T-mobile.
“Free T-Mobile Msg: Welcome to Japan. CAUTION: Text $0.50 each and Talk $2.69/min. For info call us for free +1 505-998-3793″
“Free T-Mobile Msg: CAUTION: Charges are up to $15/MB +tax for web/email/apps while roaming. To disable data please dial #763#”
Before leaving this trip, I have added extra $10 to my T-mobile account so I can still use my phone if I need.
My phone’s provider changed T-mobile to Softbank (Japanese mobile phone provider) as my screen capture below.
Softbank free wifi available stickers were every where
I saw a lot of Softbank free wifi available stickers in city so I tried to connect and I could use it :). They look like they provide free wifi to any visitors from outside Japan.
It will ask you your email address and phone number and you can use their Wifi service for 2 weeks:).

Their free wifi service is provided at cafes, restaurants, train stations, airports, highway service areas, shops, banks … etc. I used it when I couldn’t used Kansai free wifi 🙂
