Lifesaver

Could not have navigated ourselves in Japan without our pocket wi-fi. It was invaluable when trying to navigate small streets to find that little out-of-the-way restaurant.

FAQ

How many days in advance should I place my order?

In general, the sooner, the better due to the limited number of products especially in high seasons.
If you can order at least 3 days in advance counting from your pickup date, all the pickup options will be available. If your order comes later than that, there might be some restrictions on airport pickup option.

Do you have any physical stores or booths?

Unfortunately, we currently operate online only and do not have any physical shops. But that's exactly why we can provide competitive prices.

I'm already in Japan, how soon can you deliver?

It depends on where you want it to be shipped to but we can normally have it delivered the next day if we can receive your order in the day time.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept credit cards, debit cards through Stripe (a well-known, secure online payment platform).
VISA, MasterCard, American Express and other major cards are all accepted.

We also accept PayPal if it's the only payment option for you. Learn more about PayPal payment.

Do you ship overseas?

Currently, we do not ship overseas as international shipping is expensive and diverse. Also, it sometimes does not get delivered on schedule.
If you are looking for a Japan prepaid SIM card,  we sell them on Amazon.com as well for customers in the U.S..

If I order now, when will my item be delivered?

We normally deliver orders 1 or 2 days before the pickup date you select, unless it's an urgent order. So the delivery date is based on your pickup date, not on your order date.

I'm not sure how much data I will need...

It would very much depend on the individual. We suggest that you monitor your daily data usage. There are many free data tracking, monitoring apps in the app store.
