Best connectivity option
Our gold option never failed us. 2-5 devices connected. Many times at great speeds. Sometimes at snail speeds, but always connected. Annoying to have to ask for more data in 500mb increments, responding to Japanese prompts. But always granted within minutes.

GREAT Customer service
I ordered my Wifi Buddy before I left for Japan. I had emails to confirm, to check in, and felt very safe with my purchase. The Wifibuddy was at the hotel waiting for me. It worked perfectly and the return was easy as well. (I dropped it at the postoffice at the airport when I left Japan.) Everything was seemless. Thanks for the great service!

Great for staying connected on the go
I got the Platinum option I've been quite satisfied so far (been using it for a bit over a month). The device is very small (about the size of a smart phone) so it's very convenient to carry around everywhere, thus helping you stay online all the time - and trust me, you will need access to Google Maps and Google Translate a lot, especially if you don't speak Japanese! The battery usually lasts me for almost the entire day and that's without the backup portable charger. The downside might be that the achieved speeds are nowhere near the theoretical maximum speeds (JWB's website does warn you about it!). Even though the maximum speed for Platinum Wifi is 220 Mbps, I've never got much more than 1 Mbps. Still, this is more than enough for regular day-to-day use.
