Visiting Japan? NTT East Giving Tourists 2 Weeks of Free Wi-Fi
NTT East Giving Tourists Free Internet (sorry, West)
Japan's seeing record numbers of tourists these days, and in the lead-up to the 2020 Olympics, even greater numbers are expected - and wanted.
Free, publicly accessible wi-fi, something tourists with the means to tour Japan would both expect and appreciate, is actually rather rare. Sometimes you get lucky and find a wi-fi cafe, but that's a very uncommon sometimes. Or, if wi-fi exists, it rarely works and/or requires some kind of special song and dance or membership to access (airports, however, are an exception).
Assuredly aware of this, Nippon Telephone and Telegraph (NTT) has established a free wi-fi program for tourists arriving to the company's Eastern territory - which is technically north-eastern, but Japan's mapping prowess is comparable to Japan's wi-fi prowess. Anyway, there's no reason given for giving no love to Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, etc., but perhaps they've got their own thing going on down south...errr down south-west.
Major tourist destinations, currency exchanges, and a booth at the Narita International Airport provide cards with all the necessary login info. Tourists need only flash their passport to get the card, and then they're off and running...errr, internetting.
Jump through for all the info.
