Wi-Fi hotspots in Japan are still rare and for many, they require prior registration in Japanese in order to benefit from them. As for the costs of connecting from abroad, many French-speaking operators charge indecent fees to careless tourists.
This is why many travellers choose to rent a Pocket Wi-Fi to stay connected without restriction anywhere in Japan. It is a small box that acts as a portable router / box and provides unrestricted access to the Internet while roaming during your indoor and outdoor walks. Visit my-webspot.com/ for more about portable Wi-Fi.
You can surf as you wish:
- Google Maps, maps and GPS of your smartphone
- Hyperdia (train schedules) and real-time weather
- E-mail and messaging applications (Skype, Whatsapp, Messenger…)
- Social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat…)
- YouTube and online music streaming
- And of course, all websites (news, bank, Kanpai, Wikipedia, blogs…)
Understand how it works
Ultra-fast unlimited access
Very high speed 4G LTE connection in Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac (max speed: 187Mbps down / 37Mbps up).
Extremely dense Softbank network, wherever you are in Japan: 99% of the Japanese population covered.
Simple and practical
It fits in the pocket thanks to its small dimensions (only 10.4 x 6 x 1.8 cm) and its light weight (150g). Enjoying it is very easy: you only need to enter the Wi-Fi code once in your device to enjoy it throughout your stay. Of course, our support is available in French by email or phone.
For the whole family
Up to 10 machines can be connected simultaneously on the same Pocket-Wi-Fi: smartphones, tablets, laptops (PC or Mac), cameras, game consoles… The battery lasts up to ~8 hours of autonomy and the range is about 20 meters.
Recovery and return
Choose pickup at Tokyo and Osaka airports, or delivery directly to your hotel in Japan. For the return, use the envelope provided to return all the equipment free of charge before you take off again.
