How to get a mobile phone or SIM card in Japan:

With the advancement of the times, the function of cell phones has become better and better, even if you bring a Chinese smartphone to Japan, you can still use it just by applying for a Japanese SIM card and inserting it into your smartphone in China. The students who have just arrived in Japan may not be able to communicate with each other, and there are complicated problems, such as contract and procedures, so, as a general rule, the school can process the application on your behalf. Students who need the help should contact the school's administrative staff in advance. Students who have not contacted the school office in advance should complete the paperwork on their own.
