The city of Osaka, located in the Kansai region of Japan’s main island of Honshu, has launched two new Wi-Fi connections : Osaka Free Wi-Fi and Osaka Free Wi-Fi Lite.Tourists have noticed the lack of free Wi-Fi throughout the country over the last couple of years, and although we see Japan as a modern, technological country, it does miss some key features like public Wi-Fi.
Today, Osaka has launched their very own Free Wi-Fi service. Users can sign in using a valid email address, and get access to 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi with no limit on the amount of times the user can log in. Some locations, on the other-hand, offer “Osaka Free Wi-Fi Lite” that only gives you 15 minutes of Wi-Fi for up to an hour a day.
These Wi-Fi locations will be set throughout Osaka at railway stations including the Nankai Electric Railway and Kintetsu Railway networks, multiple tourist locations including The Entrepreneurial Museum of Challenge and Innovation and Suijo Bus Aqua-Liner. A couple of hotels will also carry out the city-wide Wi-Fi.
