Heading to the mountain this Winter?

Coming to Japan to enjoy the world-class powder?

Japan has several world-class ski resort towns. They're a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle and hit the fresh, fluffy snow. Onsens (hot springs), amazing views and mind-blowing views abound! But there's one thing you might need to know...it can be REALLY hard to get online out there!

Many internet providers may not work up in the mountains where you'll be going. Unlike metro areas like Tokyo, there aren't many restaurants or large stations that provide free internet either.

So whether you'll be heading to Hakuba, Niseko, Nozawa Onsen or Shiga Kogen, or somewhere else, we'll have the right device to keep you online up on the mountains or in town!

Generally, here are our recommendations:

Light Users: Silver WifiBuddy

Moderate/Heavy Users: SilverPlus WifiBuddy

Spending some time in the city before going up to the mountains? Nothing beats the PlatinumPlus WifiBuddy!

Making use of the AU and Docomo networks, these WifiBuddy mobile wifi routers will provide the best coverage available to you!
