Tokyo 23-ku
I'll be travelling to Tokyo in some months , and I love japanese mobile phones, is there a way of buying a phone without the alien card?or a second hand perhaps?
A big store would be better.

Theoretically speaking it would be possible to buy Japanese phones as a traveler, but it is generally impossible to use them in foreign countries without being on a Japanese Carrier. In practice it would be impractical and expensive.

Janet,

It's not possible without an Alien Registration Card. Your only option would be to rent a phone.
