To Unlock your Docomo Phone You will need the following:
Your phone's IMEI number: It is your phone's identity, like a serial number or a fingerprint even. Most phones have a 15-digit number written in fine print on the back of the device. You can also find it by dialing *#06# into your phone's dialer app, or go to the settings and then the About Phone section
A SIM card from a different carrier other than Docomo :
A SIM card is how your device connects with your wireless provider. To get your Docomo phone to prompt for an unlock code automatically try a SIM card from B Mobile, IIJmio or any other GSM carrier in Japan. It should be noted that carriers like Kddi, Softbank Mobile, Y!Mobile are mostly based on CDMA networks so may not be useful for using at this time. Japan is pretty strict about foreigners buying SIM cards but they are loosended their policies allowing you to buy voice/data SIMs in Japan with a tourist visa. You can now buy a data-only SIM card in Japan, either online for pickup on arrival at Narita or Haneda airports or by buying over-the-counter shops such as Bic Camera shop once you're in Tokyo.

What is Unlocking?
Cellular phones are expensive technology. To help make them more affordable to new customers carriers like Softbank, AU and NTT Docomo Japan would commonly offset the cost by locking a phone to their network. Instead of paying $600 for a new phone, new customers could pay $0 down in exchange for agreeing to a 2 or 3-year contract which had the price of the phone built into the monthly payments. The phone was then 'locked' to the network so even if you ended the contract prematurely, the phone would not work with competing services; forcing you to buy a new phone.
Unlocking a wireless device lets your phone work on any network that has compatible technology.
Why Should I Unlock My Cell Phone?
There is usually no rush to unlock your smartphone. If you are happy with your current wireless provider (docomo) you can choose to leave your device locked. However If you do choose to move to another carrier later you'll still have the right to unlock your phone later on. However if you plan on going on a last minute vacation or trip out of the country where docomo is Roaming then you are usually better off unlocking your phone so that you can purchase a local sim card and save on roaming fees. Don't get stuck with your phone being network locked when you are overseas, you may find it difficult to call back home and wait on hold incurring long distance charges. Your best bet is usually to get it over with an unlock your NTT Docomo Japan phone now.

To Unlock a Docomo iPhone an official request has to be made to Apple through the carrier ( ie: docomo). Once it is approved the unlock is pushed over the air to your handset. Usually the end user is required to insert a sim card from a different carrier and then connect their iPhone to iTunes, click back up device (to prevent data loss) and then click Restore Device. Once these steps are followed a message in iTunes will display " Congratulations Your Phone has been Unlocked ". If you don't have a SIM card for your iPhone, you can connect your phone to iTunes, erase and restore it for your phone to unlock.
