First off, to use the internet, you might think that you should contract with major companies even if it is pricey. However, as a non-resident staying in Japan, there are a lot of difficulties when you try to contract with major mobile carriers.
For example. you need a visa which has at least two years validity because the contract period is more than two years. While short-stay visitors also can make agreements, the period is fixed and you have to pay a penalty if the contract is broken before expiration. Moreover, their contracts have too many options, which can even confuse local residents, and the process will wear on you as it takes a long time and you need to make may decisions before you can get your SIM or pocket WiFi. Although each of the major carriers have many physical stores, most of them suffer from insufficient foreign language support.
