Which area code is 81

Where does the country code 0081 come from? (+81 / 0081/01181)


+81 (0081) is the country code for Japan. If you want to call a person in Aomori from outside Japan, you need the country code of the country in question in addition to the area code. The country code for Japan is +81 (0081). So if you want to call a person in Aomori from Germany, you have to call that person's phone number +81 Place 172 in front. The leading zero of the area code is omitted here. From the fictitious number 9999181, the area code 172 and the country code +81 becomes so the number +81 172 9999181.

The spelling with the plus sign at the beginning can usually be used directly in this form. However, it is more common to replace the plus sign with a sequence of digits that signals to the telephone network that you want to dial a telephone number abroad. The ITU recommends 00 for this. This is also used in many countries, including all European countries. Alternatively to the +81 172, which you have to put in front of the telephone number of a person in Aomori in order to reach them from Germany, you can also 0081 Use 172. From the fictitious number 9999181, the area code 172 and the country code 0081 (Japan) becomes the number 0081 172 9999181.

For calls received from abroad, the number of the caller may conceal a service for which the company offering this service charges an additional fee. In particular from Africa, i.e. calls with the country code + 2xx, you sometimes get calls that aim to trick the called party into calling the caller back. Calling back such a missed call often results in high costs for the subscriber in question, from which the company that made the call makes money. And all the more the longer the phone call drags on with such a callback. Caution should therefore be exercised when making such unexpected calls from abroad. In contrast to Germany, where the area codes of the expensive service numbers are often still known, this is usually not recognizable for telephone numbers from abroad.

If the called subscriber is a mobile number, then it does not matter in which country the mobile device in question is located. Whether this is an international call and, accordingly, the country code, in this case +81 (0081, Japan), has to be specified or not depends solely on whether the called mobile device uses a mobile operator from the same country as the caller. The location of the mobile device makes no difference. However, this can make a huge difference in terms of fees. Because as soon as a mobile device dials into a foreign mobile network, roaming charges apply. This must be worn by the owner of the device in question, regardless of whether he is the person being called or whether he is calling someone himself. These roaming charges have now largely been abolished within the European Union. So there are no additional costs when using a mobile device in other European countries. Outside the European Union, however, a high surcharge is often required. The roaming charges in airplanes and on ships are particularly high, provided they are equipped with a suitable cell phone. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself beforehand about the costs that may arise there or to leave the device in flight mode during the entire stay there to be on the safe side.
