Telephone cards in Japan

by muffet08

Looking for help -- does anyone know the easiest way to get and use a phone card to call the USA while staying in Japan?

RE: Telephone cards in Japan

Uhh... buy a card at a store or at your hotel, lots of hotelreceptions sell them too.

I bought my telephone card in a shop (just a little cigarette, drinks and magazines shop) on my arrival at the airport.

You can go to any convenient store (7-eleven, Lawson's...) and they can sell you a calling card. Brastel is a company that I've used before:

You can use either the green or grey pay phones on the street/hotels to call to the US. You can use a mobile phone but you won't get as many minutes. A 3000yen card will give you at least an hour of talk time.

When you buy the card at the convenient store you can use it right away. It will automatically activate.

Good luck!

The only thing with a telephone card (maybe it depends on the one you buy) is for calling with a public phone you need to put in a 10Yen coin, use the card as usual. You will get the 10Yen coin back as you finish you call. So its handy to have a seperate 10Yen coin just for this.

Also what I found out when dailing from Japan to a foreign country you have to dail the country code without the 00 so for US its only 1 and then the rest.

Thankyou so much for your reply.
Its great to know the details on the phone cards --- I know a lot about the UK phone cards and the French ones,but its been years since I have been to Japan.
I leave in 2 days --- wow

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Learn a little Japanese!

by vic&michael

It can be very scary to come to Japan without speaking any Japanese! (unless you have joined a tour group). I will give you some basic Japanese phrases that I used constantly and found very helpful in my first few months here (and even now). Often you get lost, or are not sure about the transport system, so most of my tips will be about finding the way!

1. (place) wa doko desu ka? (where is ...........) for example if you are trying to find the toilet, train station (eki), bus stop (basu tei), Ginkakuji Temple..etc. Or, you can use this phrase if you are trying to find anything, like a certain food, or restaurant, or item of clothing.)

2. migi = right , hidari = left.

3. kono densha wa (place) ni ikimasu ka? (does this train go to ............?) (densha = train). You can subsitute 'densha' for 'basu'.

4. (place/bus stop you want to go to) no basu wa dore desu ka? (which bus goes to ............?). You can use 'basu' or 'densha'.

Buy a warmed toiletseat

by tompt about donĀ“t know :(

If you are a person who get cold easily consider buying a warmed toiletseat.
It feels like someone has been there before you and sat on it for quit a while ;)
but in Japan they are very populair. (At least in public places like restaurants)
Make sure it will work at home, check voltage and plug. Japan has 110 volt and a two rectangular-pole plug. Prices are high! It will cost you 500-900 Euro or Dollar.

Kyoto Station.

by Sharrie

KYOTO STATION: If you arrive by the JR (JAPAN RAIL) this is your first contact with Kyoto. Kyoto City TIC is located on the 2nd floor main concourse (Tel: 075-343 6655). Also, check out the station's shopping area called THE CUBE which has shops specialising in local food products & Kyoto crafts.

Kyoto Japan - BEAUTIFUL

by JeSuisJill

I was on business in Tokyo and took a day trip to Kyoto. I think the bullet train cost about $100 US each way and lasted two hours. I got a map of the temples in the city and tried to visit them ALL. The best one is pictured here -- Its the golden one in the middle of a pond.

I wish I had more information to give those who are going to Japan.

Heian Shrine

by konniemario

It's a rather impressive complex and quite big indeed. It was our last temple for the day and we were a bit tired when we got there. But the huge space and nice wind and air sort of healed our tired feet and we actually had fun in this shrine. It's hard to miss with its bright orange gate and it has a huge area that leads to the actual shrine. It was built in 1895 to commemorate the 1100th anniversary of the founding of Kyoto and the buildings were colorful replicas of the Kyoto Gosho of the Heian Period. My personal favorite is the entrance part wherein you see these huge ropes hanging.
