Can I Still Get Connected with Japan Prepaid SIM/Pocket WiFi? / Case 4: Akiba Fukurou (Tokyo Owl Cafe, Akihabara)

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 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 4: Akiba Fukurou (Tokyo Owl Cafe, Akihabara)


Akiba Fukurou (Tokyo Owl Cafe, Akihabara) is one of the most tourist spots got huge popularity in 2017 at TripAdvisor. You can read over 800 feedback in English to Akiba Fukurou at TripAdvisor.



Back to the connectivity. As you would expect that Akiba Fukurou is located in the middle of Tokyo, there is completely no problem at all.

Although you may need Google MAP app as Akiba Fukurou is placed in a back alley, you can use it as much as you want without any worries on connectivity.

Oh, be quiet please in front of cutest owls!

Although they are available only in Japanese,
I just put links to network compatibility maps offered by them in one place.
If you want to check it through the links below by yourself, put Japanese “伏見稲荷大社” into their search windows.
SoftBank *Hard to search by yourself alone
au (KDDI)

If they can not help you at all, or if you have a specific area to be checked,
