An abundance of attractive places can be found in Japan. From shops where you can buy the latest in today’s fashion, festivals and fireworks displays during summer to mountains all around covered in brilliant colors during autumn, we’re fascinated over and over no matter how many times we visit.

A critical aspect of these enjoyable trips is the use of the Internet. Being able to look at traffic information and maps, email friends or post pictures on blogs, Internet access can make your trip even more fulfilling. Unfortunately, free Wi-Fi access in Japan is currently limited to certain places such as airports and major train stations. Many seek the availability of convenient Wi-Fi access, and even feel that it would be worth it to pay for such service rather than spend the time and trouble looking for free Internet.

We want to introduce to such people a convenient service. It’s the low-cost prepaid SIM card from Japan’s major electrical appliance store YAMADA Denki. Simply insert this SIM card into a compatible device to start using high-speed data communication.

There are different types of plans based on the duration of their usage, with the 7-day plan (1,800 yen before tax), 15-day plan (2,800 yen before tax) and the 30-day plan (3,500 yen before tax). For each plan, high-speed data is available at a maximum speed of 150Mbps, up to 100MB per day (*).
* If the amount of high-speed data used in a single day exceeds 100MB, the data speed will be restricted to 128Kbps until 23:59 of that day. This restriction will be released on the following day.

These SIM cards can be purchased at the LABI1 Japan Flagship Store Ikebukuro and Ikebukuro Mobile Dream Building as well as in YAMADA Denki stores nationwide. After arriving in Japan, why not consider looking into this low-cost prepaid SIM card while shopping for electronics?
