Sakura Mobile SIM Cards For Visitors & Expats In Japan
Sakura Mobile Short-Term Travel SIM: The short-term Travel SIM card (less than 90 days) is a data-only SIM. No activation is required; it’s ready to use right out of the package. It is great for tourists and business travelers alike. The options are:
Sakura Mobile SIMs work on Japan’s top network, Docomo. You can be confident that you’ll get a highly reliable service with great quality from NTT Docomo, the largest network provider in Japan since the beginning of cellphone history.
Order at least 3 days prior to your pick-up date, and the item will be delivered to your desired place in Japan (for Hokkaido, Okinawa, and faraway Islands, order at least a week before your arrival). You can choose from various places, including airports, hotels, local post offices, vacation rentals, or receive it at a residential address.
Sakura Mobile Long-Term SIM: The long-term SIM card (more than 90 days) is a Voice + Data SIM. It suits you if you are staying in Japan to study, work or for a long vacation. It works on the iPhone, iPad, Galaxy, Nexus, Blackberry, and all 3G devices.
With this SIM card, you can use your smartphone just like in your home country, but without a roaming charge. There are two plans to choose from; the 4GB LITE plan and the 25GB PREMIUM plan. For more details, visit Sakura Mobile's long-term Voice + Data SIM.
Sakura Mobile Travel WIFI
A Pocket WIFI device is comparable to a home WIFI router. It is portable and uses a mobile network to connect. To use the Pocket WIFI, you simply switch it on and connect your device to its WIFI signal, just like you do with any WIFI signal – it's as simple as that.
For a short visit to Japan, choose the Travel WIFI and pay per day while you stay in the country, or the long-term pocket WIFI if you are staying for more than 90 days and would like to pay monthly.
Sakura Mobile Home Internet
Do you need high-speed internet access at home? Sakura Fiber Internet is the best choice for international visitors in Japan! With Sakura Fiber Internet, you get:
With fiber-optic internet's unlimited data, you can attend online meetings, watch long hours of videos, and play online games, all stress-free.
Unlike the major operators, docomo, au, and SoftBank, Sakura Mobile does not require a long-term binding contract with high penalty fees for cancellation; you can terminate your contract at any time. Credit cards issued outside of Japan, as well as cash payments at convenience stores, are accepted. Visit the Sakura Mobile website for more details about payment methods.
