Japan adapter is the same adapter used in the United States. The reason you may need an adapter in Japan is because Japan's outlets are not required to be polarized. In the US outlets are required to be polarize for safety reasons. Adaptor plug changes your appliance plug to fit Japanese outlets. NOTE: All Going In Style adapters allow US plugs (two polarized flat pins) to adapt to fit other country outlets. Your North America appliance plug will fit into all Going In Style adapters. Sometimes the fit is tight so that the plug does not fall out of the adapter. Just push the plug in firmly and after a couple of uses the adapter should loosen up.

Adapter Japan Nongrounded A Features:
Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. Check to make sure your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor and other appliances are dual voltage before you leave on your trip. Non-grounded adapters may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter. Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.
Also a converter may still be required depending on what appliances you will be using in a foreign country. Japan Nongrounded A adapter plug will also work in USA, Mexico, Cuba, Honduras, Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan...
Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs Going In Style offers non-grounded adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.
This adapter is non grounded and works with appliance plugs that have only two pins. If you are traveling with a laptop with a three prong plug you will need a grounded adapter.

Computers and Apple Products If you are traveling overseas with a Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter. Most laptops are multi-voltage and will operate on voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. However, computers do need to make safe connections to foreign power systems and a surge protector is recommended and you will still need an adapter to use your plug.
