Getting a Phone in Japan

Getting a phone in Japan can be quite an easy process if you know the basic steps. Softbank and NTT Docomo are the two biggest mobile phone companies in Japan. Both have English support and phones available with English. Softbank tends to be a little cheaper with Docomo offering better coverage across Japan. I could speak Japanese so didn`t have any problems getting a phone, but most stores usually have someone who speak a little English. You will need to bring along your passport and have your gaijin registration card before you can sign up. Some places also require a hanko stamp but this is rare. Phones on the cheaper end will cost zero yen and you can select from several different monthly plans depending on the amount of use.
