Are there any pocket wifi options that use NTT Docomo as the cellular provider?

We will be travelling to a rural part of the Wakayama Prefecture and, based on our research, NTT Docomo has the best performance in countryside regions.

  • Are you looking to hire a unit, or simply purchase a prepaid SIM card? Also, what airport are you flying in to? Prepaid data SIM cards for all networks are widely available at the airports from vending machines and airport vendors. A 7 day 1GB card is JPY 3,000. – PassKit Apr 3 '16 at 7:24
  • @PassKit Out of curiosity, what are some prepaid SIMs using the au network? – fkraiem Apr 3 '16 at 13:33
  • @PassKit We're looking to hire a unit. – Friedrich 'Fred' Clausen Apr 3 '16 at 23:29

eConnect is one company that I used when I was in Japan that I know has that, and they use NTT Docomo network. (it's specified under network if you go to the prepaid SIM page). I went to very isolated areas in Hokkaidō and it worked fine


  • Thanks, I also see that their 300k WiFi-ToGo product uses NTT DoCoMo. The faster 3G and 4G pocket WiFi products use Y!mobile so we'll have to see whether or not we can manage with 300k. – Friedrich 'Fred' Clausen Apr 3 '16 at 23:33
