Japan Wifi Buddy - never without
I just spent three weeks with my wife in Japan, visiting Tokyo, Kyoto and the Hokkaido and it always worked, helping us to find roads, places to visit and good restaurants. Simple to pick up at the airport and easier to send it back through mail. A service that made our trip much simpler. Highly recommended.

Great service
The wifi buddy was invaluable for us on our trip to Japan. I was travelling with my boyfriend and we rented two Platinum WifiBuddies. One would have been enough in terms of data usage, as we had more than enough leftover at the end and we not being conservative. The only problem we had with the service was the short battery life.

The wifi buddy worked fine
The wifi buddy worked fine when it had a signal but coverage of WiMAX wasn't as good as LTE and would choose that next time.

WifiBuddy worked excellent - Nagoya, Tokyo, Kyoto.
Family of three opted for the WifiBuddy to allow multiple devices to connect to the internet. Our devices worked will to connect to onedrive to upload our daily photos. Email, internet and IP phone also worked without issues. Communication with WifiBuddy office also worked extremely well and all our questions were answered prior and during our rental.

Good wifi service
I was traveling in Japan for 12 days in both Tokyo and Hokkaido. After doing some research for portable wifi, i decided to order silver package from Japan wifibuddy. The package arrived in hotel on time. They have a spare battery in the package. It's very convenient since we was outside most of out time and we could charge the Wifi when the battery was low. The signal was pretty good (I went to some rural areas in hokkaido but still got the wifi) though sometimes we didn't get wifi signal when traveling on Shinkansen. Overall, I am happy with Wifibuddy service. I will use your service again if I come back to Japan

Great!
Having the portable WiFi from WifiBuddy was really helpful during my trip. I really appreciated it. The device worked well, I always stayed connected no matter what. The battery last approximately 8 hours, so it's reliable. Thank you !

Best $ever spent!
We used our pocket WiFi to travel all around Tokyo without ever getting lost. Able to find the nearest subway was very important. The device lasted all day and we never needed the extra battery they sent us. The device was waiting for us at the hotel, and we packaged it up and gave it to our hotel to mail back. Best rental ever!

Convenient and good
Package was waiting for me at the airport and most of the places had good wifi signal with the occasional slow connection but it was bearable. The customer service was very helpful and quick to respond too. Thumbs up

The best way to get Wifi in Japan

Lifesaver!
Having the WifiBuddy was a lifesaver for my two weeks of solo travel through Japan. Everything from reservation to use and finally return was easy, straightforward, and never had any issues. The device itself provided fast wifi everywhere throughout Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo. Will definitely use again next time and suggest to friends.

Easy and reliable
We used this on recent Hokkaido visit . We had very few periods where the wifi was not in range even around Shiretoko although we did not hike in remote areas for long periods. This was good value and I will definitely use this service again!

Excellent from start to finish
Excellent company. Superior customer service. English speaking staff made things very easy with email and messaging, beginning with our initial contact. Payment was easy via PayPal. Our WifiBuddy was waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived. Nicely packaged along with an extra battery. Easy to return with free mailing envelope which we left with our hotel concierge. The device worked perfectly. We had a fast, reliable connection when we needed it, where we needed it. We do not use a lot of on-the-go internet and the Silver plan was perfect for our needs. Out and about we used Google Translate (which can be hit and miss for the printed word); Google maps (only a few times to search for restaurants in a rural location) - we are old-fashioned and prefer paper maps and getting lost; Hyperdia (the website not the app); and japan-guide.com on Tabimori. Our trips to Japan are 42 days and only once in a long train tunnel were we aware that we were without service. Docomo has good nationwide coverage. Thank you Tre and WifiBuddy for being there when we needed you. We will definitely do business with you again on our next trips.

I was recommended to use the Wi-Fi buddy by my sister-in-law and I was pleasantly surprised on how everything worked out smoothly. We will be going to Japan again next year and will be using your services again

Great Coverage in Cities
I ordered the Platinum Japan WifiBuddy for my recent 12 day trip in Japan. The device worked very well in built-up urban areas, but had little to no effect underground, in subway tunnels, or in the wilderness of Mt Koya in Wakayama. The staff had prewarned me of this, which was appreciated, but not until I had already purchased the device. I thought that the Platinum package would have faster speeds and better access than the Silver Packages and I didn't quite realize the limitations from reading the website. It wasn't a terrible inconvenience but for my next trip. I'll definitely upgrade to the next Platinum Package. For me, having a portable wifi is indispensable and I am so grateful this service exists at all.

Great Product! Definitely recommend!
I rented a wifi buddy during my first trip to Japan and I have to say, it's great! It provided web access even in the remotest areas of Japan - countryside, on the Shinkansen, etc., with no problems whatsoever. The staff make renting and using the wifibuddy really easy and convenient. I will most definitely use one again in the future and for certain go with Japan Wifi Buddy! Highly recommended!

Twice as fast, and half the price
First of all no discount or coupon was offered for me to post this. As a background I have rented from two other services other than JWB (globaladvancedcomm [GAC], and one other company where the device never arrived), both were about twice the price. GAC was very expensive, and it was throttled very often. JWB, was the opposite. It was fast (I had the platinum plus), and I never reached the limit. It’s reception was great throughout Tokyo, wherever I went, and it lasted most of the day on a single charge. I am definitely using their service again.
