btw... did you know that it's even harder for japanese who live oversea to buy a pre paid voice sim card.. i need to copy their passport, driver license , stamp on passport and boarding pass. Soon maybe dna sample lol. This is all because of the ore-ore scam

I work at narita airport and sell sim card and nobody have international calling. I'd like to know the service?

Took 5 minutes for my nephew to get one at Haneda airport, where there are 2 or 3 outlets there offering the service. He was staying for 3 weeks. Paid with credit card, showed his passport. Simple, quick, easy. 

Data service, phone and international calling all included.

Well, let's see the picture a bit bigger than just a mobile contract (if u have a wife.. she can do for u anyway), foreigner cannot because they need to be able to read the contract, and this goes for bank, health insurance, car insurance, home insurance, etc... for a country like Japan, the system in place is just way behind other country like Thailand. I could open a bank account with a non b visa, i can have a mobile contract also, why? Because they have documents in ENGLISH ! Also, please... Sony Playstation... if u read me... Add english in your store !

It's going to be a hard move but I'm all in. I always refuse platic bag at convenient store (ain't need for my water bottle) , they can ban it or ask customer to pay for it. We did it in my country 20 years ago.

This is overaction at a high lvl... a small spank on the butt or hands never really hurt nor traumatized my kids. They something need it. And when it's done, make sure to hug 'em and explain to 'em what they did was wrong.

As i read this article ... my wife just told me that someone is coming at 10:30am today to check on my youngest daugther (she's 18 months) , she came in the past already and so did for my son... these people only stayed at the entrance of my house.. they don't even check on childrens, they just ask us few questions like (are you having trouble raising your childs?) etc....

It's a joke

Good initiative. More trainees from friendly and free nations like Taiwan, Vietnam and Philippines please. They come because they love and want to live in Japan, not for the money.
