Which Pocket Wifi is The Best

JAL ABC Wifi

First of all, available data amount is limited but it is said that the amount is enough for per day use. Also, there is no extra charge such as operation fees or airport pickup fee. Moreover, you can make reservation for renting the wifi beforehand. Or you can just go to the counter at a airport without reservation. In that case, there is no guarantee that you can rent it for sure because of limited stocks.

JAPAN Wifi

The situation with the data amount is almost the same as JAL ABC Wifi, with one significant difference being that you can make up to five simultaneous connections with the same portable wifi. The network is mainly 4G but will sometimes be 3G depending on the situation or environment. You can also return the portable wifi through delivery service inside of Japan. In that case, the delivery fee (500 yen) must be paid.

This service requires you to place your order at least four days before your desired pick-up date (Japan time). You will be charged beforehand, after your order is completed.

If you end up staying in Japan for longer than you intended and you need to continue using the portable wifi, contact one of the kiosks before the end of your rental period in order to extend your order. You will be charged at the end of your trip accordingly.

Pupuru has instruction manual in English. Another option, which is 10GB limited pocket wifi is available and its only for 400yen. 400yen for 10GB is good deal if you use wifi just for SNSs not like downloading lots of movies.
