Internet access in Japan.

Internet Access

You may think Japan is one of the Internet popular countries. In fact, it is true but for the visitors from foreign countries. There are so many Wifi signs in Japan. But these signs/logos are only for the people who has the cell phone/smart phone in Japan. If you are very connected person to the internet, it would be better to have your cell phone with international roaming service. There are three major carriers in Japan, Docomo, AU, Softbank.

If your cell phone company has the roaming service with these 3 carriers, just tell the operator to have international roaming service in Japan.

Another option is to rent a mobile router at airport.  When you are going to return to your home just bring it to the counter or mail it to post.
The price is 500 - 1000 Japanese Yen /day.

Cell phone for car driving?

Cell phone for car driving?

You are using cellular phone for tel-communication.
The car navigation system was begun by AU with the cellular
phone finally.
Because the driver cannot operate the cellular phone, the person in the
passenger's seat will operate it.
Even if it loses one's way, a correct road is guided because GPS has equipped.

It is a good service even though it is voice reading out only in Japanese.
This type would be desired available in foreign countries.

Japanese English (II)

During a conversation, you may find a strange word.
Some of them are developed in Japan.
For example, salary man.
If you ask someone, "What is your job?".
His answer might be a salaryman.
What he wants to say is "I'm an employee".
