Starbucks Free WiFi Service in Tokyo

Finally Starbucks have introduced a free WiFi service at their stores throughout Tokyo.

You will need to register to use the service at and use your userid and password to login to the service. The website is available in English and Japanese.

Once registered you connect via the “at_STARBUCKS_Wi2” at Starbucks stores. There are so many Starbucks stores all over Tokyo so this seems to be the best option for free WiFi Internet access in Tokyo. Well done Starbucks!


Most hotels have broadband internet access in the rooms though if you need to get internet access on the move then the best option is to get a WiFi device at Narita airport on arrival.
