I'm going to Tokyo this summer for holiday and trying to contact a friend there...but I don't know how to make call from my country to his cell....can anyone help?

He stays in Tokyo, so should I dial:
Country code - Area Code - 090XXXXXXXX ??? or should I skip the area code? How about the initial zero of the cell number?

Please please please help...Thank's! 🙂

Hi tas13a, and welcome to the board!

I'm sure there are more knowledgeable members here, but the following should work (at least it does from Europe):

Country code/mobile provider's code (without initial 0)/phone number, e.g.

0081/90/12345678

Calls to mobile phones do not require to dial area codes.

Anyone correct me pls.
🙂

You definitely need the 90 of the cell phone number.

Not sure about the first 0 though.

hehe try both 090 and 90 one of them should work. I heard rates are the same from the states to a cell phone or to a normal phone. I heard that is.

good luck
