Domestic Calls

Public telephones accept 10 yen and 100 yen coins and/or telephone cards. A local call (within Tokyo's central 23 Wards and some other metropolitan cities) costs 10 yen per minute. If you put in two 10-yen coins and speak for less than one minute, one of the coins will be returned to you. No change is given for partial use of a 100 yen coin.

International Calls

A direct overseas call can be made from gray-colored public telephones (See the image above) displaying an International and Domestic Telephone sign. Direct dial calls can be made via a telephone company using the company's access number.
