Check out the b-mobile sim card for rent thread by dimitri_can. Since you will be there for 4-5 days, it is cheaper than ordering one online.
but bro dimitri_can run out of sim for rent....seems like local Telco data roaming is my only choice. I can't really rent a card or mifi due to tour agency haven't confirm my hotel location.

anyone try Singtel or Starhub data roam in Japan? Is it good?

Starhub Conexus uses Docomo, Singtel partner is Softbank. I think both also big telco in japan. But Docomo may have an edge over Softbank, as it is the most established telco.

Hi, need adivse as I'll be in Osaka/Kyoto throughout my trip but my JR pass will expire on 10 Mar, while my flight back Narita-SIN is on 11 Mar 11am. Would it be better to return to Tokyo early on 10 Mar & stay in Ueno/something, or take the last train back to Tokyo & stay near Narita? Thanks!

Hi,

I intend to purchase the Two Days Osaka Unlimited Pass.
I only intend to use it for my Day 2 and Day 3 itineray.

If I visit Osaka Castle on Day 1, at the entrance area, do i need to tap my card? Or just show my Osaka Unlimited Pass and pass them the entrance fee coupon to gain free entry to the Osaka Castle?

Thanks.

Thanks for the tips.

I'm trying trying to confirm with the agency what time the group will be flying. As my gf is thai, I'm actually travelling with a tour agency in bkk. Due to current protest, people going to work depends on situation, so the agency can't give me a confirmed answer of the itinerary as of now.

I also found a jap mifi rental company that operate in bkk cater to thai tourist. Now I can only wait for the flight timing before I can confirm my decision of where to rent. Worst case scenario would be to open Singtel or Starhub data roaming.

Really appreciate all the tips you guys provided in this forum
Cheers

do check the airport website in regards to the post office operating hours (usually it's 9am-5pm)
it will help you decide better
