Great service and great device
The Platinum WifiBuddy was perfect for our two week trip to Japan. The employees were also super friendly and communicated everything we needed to know about pick-up prior to our trip. We were a group of two people using the device mostly for web searches and mapping directions (rarely streaming audio or video). For the most part we had a fast connection throughout our entire trip and managed to get by without even needing a sim card. We had some minor issues with slow connections in rural/underground or very crowded areas but it was never for an extended period of time. If we visit Japan again we would rent this same device from JapanWifiBuddy again in a heartbeat!

Easy pickup, setup, operation, and drop off.
I picked up the package from the post office at Narita Airport, turned it on, logged in using the sticker on the back of the device, and was on the internet. We kept it on and used it everyday and all day (running 4 phones) and the battery still had around 20% left by 10pm at night. Charge it up overnight and it's ready to go again the next day. An external battery was included but we never needed it. Service was great the whole time in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Hiroshima. At the end of the trip we put everything into the included preaddressed envelope and dropped it in the post box at the Haneda Airport International Departures Lobby. It couldn't have been easier or better. We'll use WifiBuddy next time we visit Japan. Thanks!

I honestly don‘t know what
I honestly don‘t know what we would have done without the Wifi Buddy. The device is very reliable wether you are at Shinjuku Station or on the fifth stage of Mt Fuji.

Super convenient, worked well
It was incredibly handy to have this while traveling in Japan. There’s free WiFi in many places but it’s almost always a pain to use. We used it for maps, transit, finding food, and random browsing and I don’t think we ever hit our limit. We were also in some pretty off the grid areas and the only time we didn’t have service was pretty deep in the mountains (or in a restaurant under the trains). The device did overheat once or twice while searching for a signal.

Great system for our trip
Used this product throughout Japan had no issues. Worked very well, we even used it in the hotel. Saved us a bunch of money compared to using our cellular data plan. Very easy to return just popped in in the prepaid envelope and dropped it at the post office in the airport They shipped to our hotel so it was ready and waiting when we arrived
