Review

You often would use free Wi-Fi during you travel to Japan.

But security is very important to use it.

I hope this article is useful for travelers to Japan.

If you are interested in Sushi culture, I recommend SUSHIDO with sushi (We also have vegetarian menu) when you visit to Tokyo.

If you are interested in Shitamachi(Do you know Shitamachi?) ,secret spots in Tokyo and Japanese casual conversation for trip, I recommend Online Japanese lesson.
