View topic - Contacting US from Japan
I've heard that getting a pay-as-you-go cell phone is a good way to contact home, but I'm not completely sure.
If possible I'm looking for something so I can contact people in the US and the people I meet in Japan.

Reason for Q #1: in big cities you can find internet access easily, and can send emails to the US.
Reason for Q #2: if you are an adult planning on meeting other adults, it might be best to bring some personal info cards to exchange with those you meet. In any case, bring along a little address book to jot down contact info. I don't think you'll find it especially crucial to have a cell phone to dial people up to make plans or "to chat."

I don't know too much about rental cellphones, but I've heard they are somewhere around 2JPY/second for domestic, out-going calls. Perhaps if you already have a phone, a better short-term plan can be acquired.
