    Hi Helena, Most airport have rental pocket WiFi for about 1000 to 1600 yen per day, but they are a little overpriced. If order online and send the pocket WiFi to your hotel or pick it up at airport's post office it will be a lot cheaper around 500 yen a day. Narita airport: 1000yen~/day http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/guide/service/list/svc_19_1.html For rental shop in airport my recommendation is World Cellular Phone Rental (DoCoMo Business Net), because it is cheap and from a large carrier. http://www.worldke-tai.com/en/rental_service.jsp Order online: 500yen~/day http://en.wifi-rental-store.jp/ http://www.wifi-hire.com/en http://www.rental-store.jp/index.html?ref=narita (Japanese) For online rental service, my recommendation is en.wifi-rental-store.jp Where are you visiting?

    Hi, I realise this is an older post, but for other people wondering... you can get data only sims from BIC Camera. They're targeted at tourists, so you should have an easy enough time purchasing one. http://www.biccamera.com.e.lj.hp.transer.com/bc/c/service/bicsim/index.jsp

    Yes. One option is to rent in the airport. You can also do it online. Pay online, they'll send the pocket wifi to your hotel along with the manual and just drop it in the post on the last day of your rental.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
