Mobal Sim Card For Hassle-Free Traveling & Living in Japan

Mobal Sim Card For Hassle-Free Traveling & Living in Japan


Let’s face it. Japan isn’t one of those places where you can conveniently access free WIFI wherever you go. And talking from personal experience, the free WIFI provided on the public transportations, even the bullet trains, are often spotty, slow and unreliable. Although Japan is notorious for being a safe country, you never know when it coms to public WIFI. Hackers can be found ANYWHERE in the world.


Come Prepared

Not only is internet connection important while traveling, often times in Japan you will find yourself in a situation where you will need to call to make reservations or use a phone number for online bookings etc.

Looking at the few very good reasons above, it is probably a good idea to come prepared.

Save yourself from the hassle of traveling without internet by making sure that you have a SIM card with data while you are in Japan.

Even if you’re coming to Japan for other reasons aside from travel, such as work or study, you’ll probably need to look for a phone service provider for long term or short term use. This can be a pain in the peach🍑 especially if you don’t speak Japanese.



One reliable SIM card provider is Mobal. I’ll be introducing some of their services and products in this article along with reasons why you should choose them.

Although I’m not a tourist, I was transferred to work in Japan for a year. And because most mobile service providers in Japan require at least a two-year-contract, I panicked. The cancellation fees were extremely high and the installation procedures seemed outrageously complicated!

After searching and comparing different providers, I came across Mobal and after 5 days of in-depth consideration, I decided to go with them.

🙋Personal Reasons Why I Chose Mobal:

I was transferred for work in Japan for one year and struggled to find a phone service that did not require long term contracts. After thorough consideration from comparing different services, I decided to land with Mobal.

⭐Here are the reasons why I chose them for my one year in Japan.

  1. All the information they had on their website were simple, clear, and most important, in English!
  2. The installation was extremely simple. Just provide my payment and personal information, pick up the SIM card or have it delivered, and then just activate!
  3. It’s been over 10 months and I’ve only had one small issue where the internet was spotty for a day. I contacted them and was surprised to get a very fast respond. The issue was fixed immediately and I never had any other issues so far.
  4. No long term commitment!
  5. I can fully view my invoice each month on the website so I can make sure that there are no hidden payments!
  6. I can change my payment plan from credit card to cash payment at convenience stores later so that I’m not charged with transaction fees on my international card.

Final Thoughts

No matter if you’re planning a trip to Japan or will be moving to Japan, knowing all your options for internet and phone service is essential. Being able to call places, look up information, and use google maps will make your time in Japan smoother and more convenient!
