When travelling to Japan getting connected online may seem like a bit of an impossible and confusing task, however this isn’t really the case. With the correct tools and information, connecting to the Internet can be seamless and easy. There are three main ways to get online while in Japan:
- sim cards
- mobile hot spots
- pocket Wi-Fi.
These all have their own advantages and drawbacks, but all ultimately complete the task of getting you online. Getting connected in Japan is important not only because it allows you to show off the amazing scenery and beautiful food to the online world, but it also makes travelling around exponentially easier. The majority of streets in Japan don’t have street names, so being able to use Google maps while walking around will ensure that you don’t get lost, while allowing you to easily find those hidden gems.
