Can Your Pocket WiFi Work Fine on Popular Zoos and Aquariums in Japan? Along with Latest Ranking by TripAdvisor Ranking

TripAdvisor has announced on September 20 that the latest ranking of Zoos and Aquariums,

named “旅好きが選ぶ!日本の動物園・水族館ランキング2018” or “Selected by Travelphiles! Top Ranking of Zoos and Aquariums in Japan 2018.”

 

This chart is based on online reviews in Japanese posted on TripAdvisor website for past a year.
Although (or . . . that’s especially why?) these zoos and aquariums are popular mainly through Japanese, you may be interested in.

 

By the way, do you concern about internet connectivity in such popular spots?
Some might take it important thing to check because they need to be get connected for contacting with family and friends, blogging on the spot, etc., etc.

 

On this blog,

I searched network connectivities on each place using connectivity maps

provided by 3 major mobile phone companies NTT DoCoMo, au (KDDI), and SoftBank.

 

 

Why do I have to check these providers’ network connectivities? Good question!

Because if you want the internet connection through your Japan travel and rent (or buy) a pocket WiFi router/data SIM card, almost all of band widths to use the internet in Japan are provided those 3 companies.

Back to the topic. Let’s take a look.

Along with it, I’ve put the direct links on each facility names.

Please go to each when you get interested (English website if they have)!
