Cellular Abroad's prepaid cell phone service for Japan is ideal for those who desire an easy way to keep in touch with friends, family and business associates while traveling from Tokyo to Osaka and beyond. Our cellular service for Japan is the only one that provides the same low rate of about $0.85 a minute to the US that the Japanese pay. Compare this to some rental companies which charge up to $2.49 a minute for a call to the U.S.!

Our Japan cell phone service is the best available anywhere, featuring no recurring monthly charges and a superior coverage area which spans over 99% of the entire population. International and domestic calls are inexpensive and incoming calls are always free, regardless of origin.

You are also sure to appreciate the compact dimensions and light weight of our Japanese cell phones, which feature large, easy to ready color displays and compact wall or desk top chargers.

IMPORTANT: In order to establish your prepaid account, we will need an electronic scan of your passport emailed to info@cellularabroad.com and we will need you to supply both documentation of your US address (a driver's license is preferable) and your contact address in Japan, even if it's a hotel address. We will need at least a week in advance registration time before you can use the phone.

If you only need a Japan cell phone for a short time, you may want to consider a Japan cell phone rental.
