During travel in Japan I would like to have internet in my laptop and Ipad. What is not very expensive solution to do that? Is there any prepaid internet in Japan? I Think I will need 1GB

    How much data would you need? 100MB? 10GB?

  • Which country are you coming from? Do you need a 3G connection or can it be tied to WLAN accesspoints?

If you would install a FON router at home, you have free access to FON spots in Japan. The coverage seems okay in some regions.

There are several different companies in Japan that rent or sell pre-paid SIM cards and portable Wifi Routers:

Not 'prepaid' per se, but Starbucks in Japan now offers free Wi-fi and an English log-in page. I've found many of the FON hotspots to be inaccessible even though I have a FON router at home as many are sponsored by Softbank and hence need to be accessed through a Softbank 3G connection to add the appropriate profile / cookies.
