Promocode user in Japan

The Fon network in Japan is formed by SoftBank WiFi Fon hotspots. Here is all you need to know so you can connect to our network in Japan as a Fon Visitor.

Fon Visitors can access the network in Japan using Promocodes.

 

1. First time Fon Visitors (not already registered)

First promocode activation

If you wish to activate a promocode for the first time, look to see if a WiFi signal "FON_FREE_INTERNET" is in range of your device and if so, connect to it. 

Open your web browser and wait for the SoftBank Fon login page to load. If it doesn't, type any web address, i.e. "www.wikipedia.org" into your browser's address bar.

Click on "Redeem a promocode". 

Sign up to create your Fon account.

Once the account is created, the following page will appear. Please introduce the promocode and click on the "Connect" button.

Once your session starts, a timer will be displayed.

2. Recurring Fon visitors (already registered)

Connection using promocode in course

If you have activated a promocode previously and you still have remaining connection time and wish to reconnect to the network:

Look to see if a WiFi signal "FON_FREE_INTERNET" is in range of your device and if so, connect to it.

Open your web browser and wait for the SoftBank Fon login page to load. If it doesn't, type any web address, i.e. "www.wikipedia.org" into your browser's address bar.

Log in with your username and password (email and password used for creating your Fon account).

Once logged in you will be able to surf directly. If not, it will mean your current promocode has expired and you will be invited to redeem a new promocode.

Note: if you have difficulties completing this process, please click here to go to the troubleshooting instructions.
