I don't know which package I should get.
If you are going to visit different prefectures in Japan including Hokkaido, Kyushu, Okinawa, and also suburbs like Koyasan, Shirakawago, Hakuba, and etc., [Docomo: Standard Speed] and [Softbank: High speed] packages are recommended since their coverage is good. Please note that Standard Speed package is designed for light use; if you watch movies or download and upload big files, you will use up the daily high-speed quota easily. If you want to use a lot of data and will be in urban area most of the time, [Wimax: High-Speed] will be handy.
Is it really unlimited?
Yes, our service allows you to have unlimited access to the Internet. However, the speed will be slow once a certain amount of data is used. Please check the details of each plan before you order.
What can I do with 110MB a day? (Standard Speed Wi-fi)
You can do all of these within 110MB data. (Estimate)
- Surf the web：100 web pages
- Message app (LINE, Whatsapp, etc): 100 messages
- Email: 20 messages
- Facebook: View 100 updates on the news feed
110MB is not sufficient to watch Youtube(normal quality). You will finish high speed data if you watch a video for more than 20min.

None of the packages suit the period I need.
Please pick one from the packages that are available. If none of the packages suit the period you need, you can either extend the rental later or simply get a longer package and return it a little early. For example, if you need it for 8 days, you can buy 7 days package now and extend 1 day later, or buy 10 days package. Tips: Depending on the period you need, it could be cheaper to get a longer package. For example,if you need it for 9 days, it is cheaper to get the 10 days package than to get 7 days package and extend it 2 days. Please check the prices and pick the best option for you.
