Q. Please explain more about
cell phone contracts
and the
Internet environment.

A.In order to use a cell phone, you will need to purchase a phone from a company that handles mobile phones and you will need to enter into a phone contract to make calls and other communications. To connect to the Internet you will need to enter into a contract with an Internet provider. Some public facilities also offer free Wifi. Since high-speed lines are in place in Tokyo, you can benefit from high-capacity data communication.

Cell phones

The purchase price of a cell phone can reach several tens of thousands of yen, but it is also possible to pay in monthly instalments (in addition to communications/call charges). Communications/call charges are paid in 1-month units, and you can choose at time of contract whether to pay by credit card, or by direct debit from your bank account.
