“Free Wi-Fi in Ginza would be very convenient”
The district meeting for the Annual Meetings of the IMF and World Bank that will soon be held in Tokyo ended with talk of starting a G Free (Ginza District Free Public Wireless LAN) program.
With free Wi-Fi, foreign tourists who are charged high communications fees can easily send and receive information.
Based on the idea that a free Wi-Fi system in Ginza should be accessible to “anyone, anywhere, free of cost,” it was decided that the service would start with the area along Ginza-dori from Ginza 1-Chome to 8-Chome as a free Wi-Fi area.
On Ginza-dori, which is closed to traffic to become a pedestrian paradise on weekends and holidays, anyone can link to the world and send and receive information for free, without a password.
G Free is the longest free Wi-Fi zone setup along one street in Japan.
Throughout history, Ginza has been an area that is always actively pursuing new endeavors. With G Free, it has added even more brilliance, and has taken a step forward to becoming a truly international area that will also please tourists visiting from overseas.
