Better to Have WIFI with You in Japan

Probably you already got the tattoo concealing sticker if you have tattoo following one of our article. But How about a pocket WIFI? 

 

Japan has a terrible WIFI access to the public. If you travel to a country side and stay at a local inn, best not to expect to have a WIFI. 

 

It is highly recommended that you rent a pocket WIFI for the trip to Japan. Probably a company in your country offers the service, where you get the device before you leave your country. It is seemingly convenient but there are occasions where the device does not work well and you have no support in Japan. In this way, it is better to rent it in Japan. Usually you can pick the device up at your airport in Japan and return it by putting it into a post box which is almost all over Japan. Major companies are such Global Advanced Communications and Pururu.

 

Many devices allow you to connect to it with your friends at the same time ( great when you travelling in a group). When you rent, please be careful to check the usage limit of the device. Sometimes the limit is too low and when you overuse it (the capacity runs out esp. many in your group use it for streaming etc.), you need to purchase more usage capacity.
