Is there Wi-fi on the Japanese trains?

Internet access by wifi is not available across all of the Shinkansen lines. The train network is currently being modernized. By the end of 2019, free wifi will be available on all the 2,096 cars of the 131 trains.

Free access to WLANs (wireless local area networks) will soon be available on the Tokaido Shinkansen line from Tokyo to Osaka. The Sanyo Shinkansen line from Osaka to Fukuoka is also likely to provide Wi-Fi access as both lines are connected.

In addition, free wifi access will be offered in the waiting rooms of all 17 stations along the Tokaido Line, as well as on the popular Hida Limited Express train from Nagoya to Takayama.

In the meantime, you can rent a Pocket Wi-Fi which offers high-speed internet access 24/7. It is possible to connect up to 10 devices to the pocket wifi and it supports PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
