We are pleased to announce that WiFiBOX, a self-contained Wi-Fi rental service that allows customers to easily rent a mobile Wi-Fi router with a contactless connection, will be newly installed at the two new Smarphone Repair Factory stores, Shibuya and Asty Shizuoka, both of which will begin service on October 31, 2023 (Tuesday).
The Asty Shizuoka store will be the first in Shizuoka Prefecture to install WiFiBOXes, and is conveniently located directly connected to JR Shizuoka Station.
This additional installation brings the total number of WiFiBOXes installed to 45 locations at 39 facilities. By continuing to install WiFi boxes throughout the city, we aim to improve customer convenience by meeting the needs of foreign visitors to Japan as well as domestic business and tourism travelers and those in need of a gigabit of data.

Smartphone Repair Factory Web site
Smartphone Repair Factory is a smartphone and tablet repair store with more than 150 stores nationwide. As smartphones have become a necessity in our daily lives, WiFiBOX has a high affinity in terms of providing support for smartphone use and in the pursuit of customer convenience through the development of many stores. In August 2023, we began installing WiFiBOXes at three stores: Shinjuku PePe, Osaka Namba Walk and Tenjin Underground Mall. This time, we will start services in the Shibuya area, where WiFiBOX use is in high demand, and in Shizuoka, which will be the first WiFiBOX installation in the prefecture.
The first WiFiBOX installation in Shizuoka Prefecture.
In the Shibuya area, WiFiBOXes are currently available at "Creation Square SHIBUYA" on the 4th floor of Shibuya Mark City and the tourist information center "shibuya-san" on the 1st floor of Shibuya Fuclas. This will make it possible to receive and return the WiFiBOXes at locations close to Shibuya Station and the Miyamasuzaka area on the JR, Tokyo Metro, and Tokyu lines.
This is the first time this service will be available in Shizuoka Prefecture and in the Tokai area.
This is the first WiFi box in Shizuoka Prefecture and the second in the Tokai area, after the one at Central Japan International Airport, and is conveniently located in Asty Shizuoka, which is directly connected to JR Shizuoka Station, about a 2-minute walk from the Shinkansen ticket gate. This will make it possible for customers who get on and off at Shizuoka Station on business trips and vacations, as well as for those who rent at Tokyo Station and return at Shizuoka Station, to pick up and return items across the region. In addition, since the main route for overseas travel is from JR Shizuoka Station to Haneda or Narita Airports, passengers can pick up their tickets at Shizuoka Station before leaving for their trip.
