Correct.

NTT Docomo and Softbank fight with eachother to provide my iphone 
connection, since arrival in Narita on Saturday, and while I am in Kyoto 
en route to Hiroshima.

Seems to be several wifi providers available for data too (which could 
be preferable to $30/Meg for regular mobile roaming, and Docomo had 
consistent wifi offered from Narita to Kyoto on the Nozomi, and here in 
Kyoto.
