High Capacity Network with Stability and High Speed Data Communication

A pocket WiFi in the SoftBank network provides you high speed and stable data communication with a large capacity. If you need high speed and a large capacity on data communication, this is highly recommended. The prices can be much more reasonable by sharing it with your partner, family, or friends. With data capacity of 3GB per day, you will be practically free from any stress on data communication. With LightPocket plans, data communication is basically unlimited. Only if you use a heavy data comsumption for several days in a row, SoftBank might limit its speed to maintain data quality as a whole.

Based on that, LightPocket succeeded to make plans at reasonable prices by contracting the optimized data capacity with telecommunications companies.
Docomo network is the most stable and has the widest coverage among the others in Japan.

Worked amazingly well everywhere we went, including the mountains of Niseko. LightPocket also left an personally handwritten message with the package upon receipt, which was a really nice touch! Would definitely recommend this service!

The whole process was very easy, from picking the router up at the airport to the day of returning it. THe internet saved me from getting lost a whole lot of times, I'm very happy to have found this service, because back in the day when rentable internet wasn't a thing yet, I was always in trouble setting up meet ups with friends in Japan. It worked always perfectly for me and never ran out of battery too fast, it provided good internet connections at any time it was needed. Can't be more satisfied and it was the second time I used it :)

Got it on time and easy return. Good battery capacity. Generally worked well, except sometimes in Tokyo when it was very slow late in the day . I do not know if this was due to the fact I exceeded 350 Mb (which is very unlikely as I used it only for google map and some internet browsing) or whether due to coverage problem in Tokyo.

Using Light Pocket was for me the easiest, simplest uncomplicated way of going online in Japan. You can't always rely on local wifi ....it often involves tedious registration procedures - exactly what you don't want when you are standing on Shinbuya Station with trains arriving every few minutes with obscure destinations....!
