TOKYO, March. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Inc., which provides "Global WiFi," the low-priced and high-network quality mobile Wi-Fi router rental service for overseas, launched "NINJA WiFi" (http://www.ninjawifi.com) as a new service for foreign visitors to Japan on March 5.
According to the Japan National Tourism Office (JNTO), foreign visitors to Japan in 2014 jumped 28% over a year ago to a record 13.41 million people (*1). But what the foreign visitors wanted most during stay in Japan were Wi-Fi connection services; according to foreign visitors' consumption survey, 50.1% of them cited the problem (*2).
In a bid to attract 20 million foreign visitors to Japan in 2020, improving the Wi-Fi use environment is essential and has been gradually upgraded. However, the security concerns remain, funds for full-scale expansion are insufficient and there is the lack of mobility, making it difficult for users in constantly in motion to utilize the Wi-Fi network.
Vision Inc., taking advantage of its operational know-how for over 1 million users in the last three years through the mobile Wi-Fi router rental service for overseas "Global WiFi," will release the "NINJA WiFi" for foreign visitors to Japan.
By counting on "NINJA WiFi," foreign visitors to Japan can relieve their connection-related stress to enjoy their sightseeing and business travel to the fullest. And we hope they will post their pleasant experiences in Japan at any time and on the spot through social networking services.
"NINJA WiFi" is so named to encourage users of the service to be active anywhere like a ninja.
The new service is convenient because you can order "NINJA WiFi" on our website and at our airport counters, where you can pick up and return it.
