Hi all, anyone knows if we can buy prepaid simcards in japan? I remember sometime ago when i was there they do not sell, not sure about now. Local telcos do have packages tt amount to $21 per day, any better alternatives? Thanks..

Hi bro,

not sure if this would help.

When I was in Hokkaido last year for 2 weeks, I bought one of their prepaid sim card which I felt was really worth it. cost abt $50 sing and was unlimited for 14 days. Speed is decent and there was coverage in most areas. 

Sorry, I can't recall the name of the telco. Think its B mobile or something. I bought it online via their website and collected it at the airport post office. You would need to pre-order few days in advance and state the activation date. All their airports have this postal officce service so collection should not be an issue. 

Also, they have free wireless at the airport. However, u would need to pre-register before using. Hence, its advisable to do so before your trip.

I signed up the Wi2 wifi, 3days for yen 1,500 but don't have full coverage. Local sim is still the best
I wonder the International SIM is any good? I got local SIM across Asia. Could be quite troublesome. Need to remember to Top Card.

Used the prepaid sim card from  http://www.bmobile.ne.jp/english/faq.html

cost about $50 for 2 weeks but limited to 1GB. Coverage was quite good.

Try this?

Go to www.telecomsquare.sg

Never use before. But one of my mate did. Never hear any complains.
