How to call from a public telephone

  • When using public telephones equipped with an emergency dial button (card phones, yellow phones, blue phones, red phones that work with ¥10 coins)
    Pick up the receiver, and dial by pressing the "Emergency Dial Button".
  • When using a digital public telephone
    Pick up the receiver, and dial after you hear the tone. Digital public telephones do not have an "Emergency Dial Button", but you can dial 110 without a telephone card or coins.
