Hello forum people,

Does anyone know if in Japan will I have the chance to access the Internet for free?

Yes, at some locations. Eg:
-your hotel
-many 7/11
- some train or subway lines
- some wifi hotspots of cities
- some coffee shops/bars...

But itfs not a continuous access. It depends where youfll be traveling how often you can find one. Probably 7/11 is the most reliable bet as there are so many of them.

There is also an app , I think something like gfree WiFi Japan g. I canft use it myself as itfs only for tourists and I am still registered in the Japanese App Store. I think it just shows on an easy map a summary of different existing WiFi spots. Itfs not continuous access to WiFi.

Actually a lot of information is readily available online:

Enjoy your trip to Japan!

There are a number of ways to access the internet in Japan. These include pocket Wi-fi devices, SIM cards, and providers such as hotels, trains, and cafes. I didn't use Roaming but wireless (Wi-fi) hotspots in Japan. Wi-fi for tourists is provided in many public places, such as at international airports and tourist information desks. Japan Connected smartphone app aids you in finding over 150,000 free tourist hotspots. You can also receive a gWi-fi passporth by calling Softbankfs toll-free number to access around 400,000 hotspots at cafes, restaurants, train stations, and hotels.

I used Kansai WiFi (Official) where they help you to access a lot of free wifi hotspots in the Kansai Area (Shopping centres, conbini etc.) and I really liked it because It was easy to use because the app accessed the hot spot and transfered you or something like that... (no technical know how on my side ^^'')
