Internet in Japan

It can be intimidating when you’re traveling through Japan surrounded by kanji, hiragana and katakana (the Japanese alphabets or characters). Nowadays we find a local restaurant online, check ferry time tables there or simply search the fastest way to the hotel in your own language.

However moments arise when there is no internet. It wasn’t easy to buy a sim card, or simply forgot about it. But don’t worry. We created a map, where you can easily find free wifi spots all around the Yaeyama islands. The spots are all located in public spaces. Feel free to check the spots beforehand, and use them on the go to find your online information.

These are the free wifi-spots in Ishigaki, Iriomote, Taketomi, Kuroshima, Yonaguni and the other Yaeyama islands.

The free wifi spots on the Yaeyama islands are provided by the local government. Just look out for the following sign.
