We used Global Advance and it was at the hotel for us when we checked in. Great service.
thank you !
I used Rentafone Japan when I was last there and would do so again. It was waiting for me at the hotel and with an envelope to post it back which I did at the airport.
We went for the slower speed one with better coverage and it was fine except a few rural places we went.
It was a really good size too that just slipped in to the coin pocket of a pair of jeans.
We recently used Global Advance Communication for 36 days and were quite happy with their faster speed pocket wifi, except for our 7 day stay in eastern Hokkaido where we couldn't get service. It might be a good idea to send these companies your itinerary to ensure you will get the best coverage before you commit to a rental. Being able to access hyperdia and google maps on the fly was invaluable.
All the reputable companies (including Global Advance Comm) have coverage maps published.
bibmbob, thanks...I totally missed these maps. Next time I'll be a better informed consumer!
