There are few Free Wi-Fi Spots|Warning and Advisory


There are few free Wi-Fi spots(mobile hotspot) in Japan, not just Yamanashi Prefecture. To use Wi-Fi, it is best to use a cafe or hotel that supports Wi-Fi and electric power supply. Using a rental Wi-Fi router is also good, but there is mountain and forests around Fujiyoshida, so the signal is poor.

Recommend Cafe(has Wi-Fi and Power supply)

The following cafes have Wi-Fi. There are some cafes where you can borrow a power supply, so let’s make effective use of it.

Please consider that there is no publicly available Wi-Fi. There is Wi-Fi that cafes and restaurants kindly provide.

You can download apps and browse websites, but cannot make video calls inside the cafe(need to keep silent). If you really need a video call, ask the store staff and get permission.

Places with Rental mobile Wi-Fi

There is a shop where you can rent mobile Wi-Fi near Mt.Fuji Station. At this shop, you need to deposit 10,000 yen when you rent a mobile Wi-Fi device, but if you return the mobile Wi-Fi device, 10,000 yen will be returned.

The rental fee for 3 days is 2,000 yen, and the rental fee for 1 week is 4,400 yen. If you want to use the internet regardless of location, use a rental mobile Wi-Fi device.


May require Registration(use by mobile data comm)

McDonald’s also has Wi-Fi, but you need to register or log in with SNS to connect. It’s a little inconvenient because you need mobile data(mobile telecommunication) to connect to Wi-Fi.

Also, the line speed is very slow because it is used by local people and many customers. In that case, we recommend going to a cafe with a good Wi-Fi environment and using a fast line.

Collect information while you are at the hotel so that you can minimize the internet connection locally.
