About Anyfone

Anyfone’s new service is truly attractive for tourists. Free data access to the Apps, unlimited data, so many prepaid SIMs to choose from!

Free access to 10 Apps included in products with these icons!
Facebook, LINE, WhatsApp, WeChat, Kakao talk, Google Maps Twitter, Messenger, Skype, Instagram

The beauty of Anyfone is that the data used by the well-known applications on your smartphone is considered zero, and you are free to use them.
In other words, if you use Facebook, Instagram, etc. in Japan, you will not be charged for the data transfer.
Google Maps is probably what you use the most when you are traveling in Japan.
This usage is also free.
Normally, you would have to repeat the process of looking at Google Maps, stopping, walking for a while, turning Google Maps back on, and looking at the map, all while worrying about data usage. I can get to my destination while listening to the navigation.
This is good.
After that, I look forward to taking pictures at my destination and uploading them to Instagram.
And it’s free to upload the photos to Instagram.
That alone will reduce your data usage considerably.
If you are a smartphone addict, this may be the perfect service for you.

Please refer to the following notes for more information about this service.
