Japan sim card

Hi guys, I’m going to japan for 10 days but I realize the SIM card only has 6 days or 8 days option?

Am I looking at the wrong SIM card? What SIM card do u guys usually buy?

I use the icc Sim during my last trip. Quite reliable despite me using data to watch football for 2 nights

Most convenient option is actually using your telco roaming data

then no need to change sim card, can keep your number etc. Starhub roaming 3gb might be able to last 1 week and that is $20

13 bucks for 3gb,1 week. Starhub prepaid that is.

20 bucks should be 6gb, 8 days

Probably the weight of a 10000mah power bank? My wife carries it in her sling porter bag since the start of our trip..

Changi one both the normal + orange all thiong brand one
If u es t to make sure it's good ask if docomo

Most wifi or sim only tap on SoftBank even singtel or m1 but starhub tap on docomo

I once rent one Japan mifi docomo and a Japan or Korean mifi egg and a starhub roam all on docomo all is good
