Mobile Data

Which is the best way out?

1) Rent a Sim Card
2) Buy a prepaid data card.

Which one to go for? E.g Bmobile, Softbank..

I am using Sumsung Note 2 and Apple Iphone 5.

Can our phones be using there using their sim card?

Thanks

which would probably mean that a portable wifi be better

you are not going to be separated

can use within a certain range of the mobile wifi device.

pay a fixed amt per day for it. and no need to swap sim cards and stuff.

yes, it is still safe.

no, I can't give u any guarantees. Nobody can but there was no explosions which would have spread a radioactive dust cloud ALL OVER ASIA... so if you are not going to Fukushima itself...

go! have fun!! The Japanese are getting on with it, I am not sure why we can't

it is still safe... see this latest article in CNN:
Japan's Fukushima crisis: How did we get to this point? - CNN.com

What threat does the current leak pose?
"In the grand scheme of things, is it a potential threat to Tokyo or the countryside outside the plant proper? Truthfully, no," said Friedlander.
but if u are worried, then better dun go. coz u wun be able to enjoy urself with all the worrying
