How to Call to Japan from the USA

To call Japan from the U.S., just follow these simple dialing directions:

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 81, the country code for Japan.
  • Then dial the area code (1-5 digits -- please see a sample calling code list below)
  • and finally the phone number (4-7 digits).

International calls to Japanese mobiles are dialed just like any other international call. So to call a Japanese mobile phone from the U.S., dial 011 + 52 + 1 + area code + number.
