Chubu Centrair International Airport: Pocket Wi-Fi

Nagoya the third largest metropolitan areas in Japan known as its major manufacturing center is served by the Chubu Centrair International Airport. It is the fourth largest airport in Japan and serves all of the Chubu region’s flights in and out of the country. Nagoya being the manufacturing capital of Japan, it has the main manufacturing factory for Toyota and has many people coming for business. However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t much to see in Nagoya. Although it isn’t the sightseeing capital like Tokyo and Kyoto, Nagoya still has a few places to definitely see.

The Nagoya castle is the most visited place by tourists in Nagoya and features a few areas which are great to see. These include the castle keep, which is especially beautiful during the cherry blossom season from late March to early April and works as a hanami spot.

If you are traveling with kids, they will definitely love Legoland. Although it is a bit pricey, your kids will definitely love it. Separated into seven different areas, it’ll keep your kids busy for a long time which might help you relax during your travels. Additionally, if you don’t like the high price of admission, your kids might enjoy the Nagoya train museum nearby.

The SCMAGLEV and Railway Park is the railway museum run by Central Japan Railways (JR Central). Mainly focused on high speed rail, it has a variety of trains from the shinkansen to express trains and includes a whole section dedicated to the maglev project that spans from Tokyo to Osaka.

For both the typical traveler and the typical businessperson, Chubu Centrair Airport has many services to accommodate the needs and wants of everyone. In particular, the most important tool for people is internet. Used to communicate, set up meetings, or find a place to eat, the internet is essential when traveling either on business or pleasure as it’s used for everything. Although Japan has a free Wi-Fi system in place, it is not designed to accommodate the usage of so many people, and therefore the best way to stay connected while traveling in Japan is a Pocket Wi-Fi device.

A Pocket Wi-Fi device is a small device that connects your other devices such as phones, computers and tablets to the internet anywhere in Japan. This will help you not miss those important messages while abroad. Sure you can opt for a travel SIM or use your local carrier’s international plan but those are hard to set up and expensive to use compared to a Pocket Wi-Fi; and they can only be used by one device while a Pocket Wi-Fi can share internet with up to 10 devices.

Although a Pocket Wi-Fi is a great device, it may be hard to choose one with so many options out there especially in an airport such as Centrair. That is why we have curated a comparison table with information such as data speeds, limits, and prices.
