[Convenient for getting information and accessing SNS and e-mail while you stay in Japan] Free WiFi Service Launched for Foreign Travelers to Japan!

2014/02/13

Available at 200,000 wireless LAN spots throughout Japan, including Keikyu Line stations and on the Keikyu Limousine Bus
Keikyu Corporation, the top provider of transit access from Haneda Airport to the Tokyo and Yokohama areas, is proud to announce the launch of a public wireless LAN service for foreign travelers visiting Japan that can be used free of charge from March 1.
This service allows customers using the Keikyu Line to make use of free WiFi spots for up to six hours at 200,000 or more locations throughout Japan, including the Keikyu Line Haneda Airport International Terminal Station, Haneda Airport Domestic Terminal Station, Shinagawa Station, on Keikyu Line trains (some cars only)*, and on all Keikyu Limousine Bus vehicles.
After arriving in Japan, simply go to the Keikyu Tourist Information Center in the Haneda Airport International Arrival Lobby and fill in the required information in order to receive a card with an ID and password that gives you WiFi access.
This service is highly convenient for using the internet to get tourist information, and accessing SNS and e-mail after arriving at Haneda Airport, which will help you to have a smoother journey.
Since the number of foreign visitors travelling to Japan via Haneda Airport is increasing due to the cheaper yen and more relaxed visa requirements for various ASEAN countries in recent years, and because an increase in international arrival/departure slots is expected at Haneda Airport from spring, Keikyu Electric Railway will continue to expand this service to make it more complete.
Please see the attachment for more information.
*WiFi access areas will be expanded to include all Keikyu Line stations and cars
