Save time & money

Renting a pocket WiFi router from NINJA WiFi in Japan presents several advantages over purchasing a SIM card. One of the primary benefits is the ease of setup; there’s no need to replace your home SIM card or tweak any phone settings. You just turn on the pocket WiFi device and connect your gadgets to it. Furthermore, a significant advantage of pocket WiFi is its ability to allow multiple devices to connect simultaneously. Whether you have a smartphone, tablet, or laptop — or if you’re traveling with family or friends, everyone can be online without needing individual SIM cards.

Another advantage is consistent connectivity. While some SIM cards might pose limitations based on phone compatibility, with pocket WiFi, any device with WiFi capabilities can connect. Moreover, travelers can bypass the often time-consuming process of activating a SIM or entering into a contract. Companies like NINJA WiFi provide a generous data allowance, which can be favorably compared to some tourist SIM cards that might offer limited data.

From a cost perspective, if you’re traveling in a group, sharing a pocket WiFi can be more economical than everyone purchasing separate SIM cards. And for added convenience, companies like NINJA WiFi have counters at major airports for easy pickup and return of devices. As a bonus, you get your router at the airport and can start using your internet as soon as you leave the airport.
