Additional Info

Japanese cell phone rental is the perfect solution for your short term communication needs: our lines are post paid, roaming on one of the largest network provider in Japan,  so your communications are always as good as they'd get on the place you are in.  Remember that Japan uses a cellphone network that works only in Japan, based on CDMA technology, so 99.99% of US phones are NOT going to work over there.    Also, our rates are a small fraction of what providers in the US charge, as you can see on our table at the top of the page.  Our Japanese Cell phone rental is the most cost effective, reliable and simple solution to keep in touch in whatever part of Japan you find yourself in.
