Japan 4G SIM Card Review
How to get mobile data in Japan? Most of us will rent the Japan 4G Pocket WIFI as it is reliable and can share to multiple users. What if there are no more units left to rent? That happened to me earlier this month as I was traveling to Osaka and Okayama in Japan. The holiday season kicked in and most of the Japan 4G Pocket WIFI were all rented out. There is another possibility of renting the Japan 4G Pocket WIFI in Japan but I chose to get the Japan 4G SIM Card as it is the cheapest.
If you booked with Klook.com, you have an option of 1GB Data for 6 days (RM 38), 3G Data for 8 Days (RM 78) or Unlimited 4G Data for 8 days (RM 121). For Japan 4G Pocket WIFI (Malaysia pick up), you can get it for RM 17 per day and Japan 4G Pocket WIFI (Japan pick up), you can get it for RM 28 per day. Since I was traveling alone for 8 days, I tried the Unlimited 4G Data for 8 days (RM 121) for the first time.
After I booked with Klook.com, I had the choice to pick up at Kansai International Airport or at JR Namba Station. You just need to show them the voucher on your mobile and they will pass the 4G SIM Card to you. Since I was rushing to Okayama, I picked up at Japan Holiday Travel OCAT Tourist Information Center (1/F), JR Namba Station in Osaka.
It is quite easy to use the 4G SIM Card as there are manual in English. Within minutes, my phone was running on local 3G/4G signal. I used the 4G SIM Card in the Osaka and Himeji area (mostly in cities).
For the reception, you can get 4G+ at most times but in terms of speed, it is not fast that I expected. Honestly, the Japan 4G Pocket WIFI is faster but if you are not a data heavy user, the Japan 4G SIM Card is good for you.
