    • Hi Chin, you are most welcome, remember to one level up from lobby for awesome view of Tokyo Skytree. The hotel has free wifi and now all metro station has free wifi. Docomo is a big brand in Japan hence should be no problem. JR line are not included in the tourist pass, alternatively use google search to find the closest tokyo metro or toei subway station
