NTT Communications Corp. has installed vending machines for prepaid SIM cards at Narita International Airport, offering an easy option for users to activate their mobile phones and other devices on arrival.
Users simply scan their passports to register identification information.The machines operate around the clock. One is in the arrival lobby of Terminal 1 and the other is in the arrival lobby of Terminal 2.
NTT Communications installed the machines because of the continuing rise in foreign visitor arrivals. Previously, SIM cards were only available at stores in the airport.NTT Communications already has SIM card vending machines at the Aqua City Odaiba shopping complex in Tokyo and Kansai International Airport in Osaka Prefecture.
