1 to 3gb usually
Why not rental mifi in sg or a japan sim in sg or hoot a local prepaid sim from the 3 major telco save u the hassle hunt for SIM card as japan u need to activate it via wifi if u hoot form the shop

I rent a mifi locally and hoot a starhub prepaid and activate the data roam not bad is in docomo i test from tokyo outdoor and indoor mall no issue and go lake kawakuchiko and nikko jo issue with it beside on highway some times will auto drop to 3g but it willl go back go 4g pretty decent

And u can top up if u use it up and if u didn’t use it up it wil auto roll over to local data too

Neither I feel they are bulky. I will recommend north face. Some of gortex certified and they offer better warmth without the bulk

hello guys, 1st timer to japan/tokyo. i'm planning to do 2 day trips to hakone and kawaguchiko...

good to get the Fuji Hakone Pass right?
https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2358_014.html

for the day trip to hakone, i think i'll probably top up for the romance car. i can top at at the counter where i buy the Fuji Hakone Pass right?

for the day trip to kawaguchiko, do i also get the highway bus tix from the same counter as above or i'll have to go to another bus tix counter and show them the Fuji Hakone Pass? does the bus tix include a return trip?

i think i will follow the sequence/plan as listed here https://highway-buses.jp/course/kawa...onedaytrip.php

thanks!

Would like to check if it's easy to buy the Sagano Scenic Railway ticket in Kyoto if I get it maybe 5 to 6 days before the day of the ride? Just worried that it might be sold out Klook is selling it at twice the price compared to if I were to purchase in Kyoto itself.

Also, if I'm going to USJ during the 4th week of May (probably on Wed or Thur), would I need an express pass? Not sure if the queues would still be long during midweek.

The fuji hakone pass only allow 1 round trip from tokyo.
i.e tokyo - kawaguchi - hakone - tokyo, or
Tokyo - hakone - kawaguchi - tokyo
So u will need to get ur own tickets if making 2 day trips.
