    Access 4G LTE WiFi across Japan with this pocket router that connects to the Softbank Network. Have the router delivered to your hotel or pick it up at the airport.

    WiFi Router was waiting for us on our arrival at hotel (Pick up point), and were able to leave it at hotel on our departure (delivery point). Prompt and impressive communication from Vision Inc. who arranged this in Tokyo. Such a smooth transaction and the WiFi Router itself a nice size to carry around. It lost signal quite a few times BUT we were most of the time on the underground in Tokyo and it was just for a moment with it re-connecting straight away to the underground directions we were using. We only had a problem in the Asakusa area of Tokyo for some strange reason on both occasions. It was very good on navigating the whole of Tokyo to and including the whole of Kyoto, etc. To sum up: A whole lot better than we imagined it would be - reliable and when charged up easily lasted all day.
