The problem is, you cannot use credit card when buying a ticket at the vending machine.

It makes even Japanese people get irritated.

Alternatively, you can use credit card by reserving online in advance, or you can use credit card at a ticket window, however there will be quite a long queue there…

In any case, I think this should be improved.

In the train

On board the train, there is plenty of leg room and there are electrical sockets at the foot area.

It might be bit difficult to plug in your devices if the cord is short though.

How to connect to Wi-Fi

You can select “KEISEI_FREE_Wi-Fi” SSID.

Afterwards the following page will be displayed :

Click(tap) “Access the internet here” button.

After several pages will be displayed, then you will be connected.

It was good.

I felt no stress when I tried to upload quite a lot of images.


One thing though, you cannot use WiFi on the train…

Therefore I’d advise that you Check anything you need to using wifi on the platform or station, before riding the train.

Hopefully WiFi will be installed on the train soon.
