Internet in Tokyo

Getting online isn’t always as easy as you might think in a super-tech country like Japan, but it’s getting better. With the run-up to the Olympics, the government and the tourism industry are scrambling to make the country more connected and tourist-friendly. And getting cheap – and even free – internet access is totally possible if you know where to look.

We’ve got the low down on cafés with wi-fimobile routers, phone rental, VPNs, and more. We even explain how to sleep surrounded by the sweet sweet embrace of internet in the glow of a dozen computer screens at a manga café. And we’ve got tips and interviews for entrepreneurs, too.

Finally, popular applications for Tokyoites include Line and Vine – but those will probably be out of date by the time we hit “publish.”
