Electricity

The voltage in Japan is 100 volts. Japanese electrical plugs have two, non-polarized pins which fit into North American outlets. Some North American equipment works fine in Japan without an adapter but equipment involving heating (e.g. hair dryers), may not work properly. The frequency of electric current is 60 Hertz in Western Japan including Matsuyama. Most equipment is not affected by differences in frequency.
