Can I Still Get Connected with Japan Prepaid SIM/Pocket WiFi? / Case 1: Mt.Fuji

Checking map, contacting with people, searching for something, etc. etc.
Internetting is essential, especially you travel abroad.

But, even at famous tourist spots, Japan sometimes has no connectivity with the internet.
How do you know that beforehand?

Japanese 3 major mobile phone company companies NTT DoCoMo, au (KDDI), and SoftBank provide the maps, showing how far each company’s frequency reach.

But unfortunately, these are available only in Japanese.
So, in this page, I checked it on behalf of you.


Case 1: Mt.Fuji

Good trip starts from good preparation.
Hope your travel in Japan will be memorable.
