Press Release from Wire and Wireless Co., Ltd.

With the recent sudden influx of visitors to Japan, there has been also a rise in complaints about the lack of free Wi-Fi hotspots. In an effort to solve this problem, a Japanese telecommunications company, Wire and Wireless Co., Ltd., introduced a free Wi-Fi connection app two years ago, called TRAVEL JAPAN Wi-Fi, for tourists to Japan, while the app is free of charge. Recently the coverage of this service has been expanded, allowing connections at a massive 200,000 hotspots throughout Japan. Visitors from abroad can download this TRAVEL JAPAN Wi-Fi app before coming to Japan, and by completing a simple set-up procedure, they can use hotspots at over 200,000 locations within Japan for free.
