eSIM Japan

The hugely popular eSIM Japan offers economical data-only eSIMs for visitors to Japan. Their plans come with a variety of lengths and data limits. Their eSIMs are provided by China Mobile Hong Kong, but roam to the domestic KDDI au and SoftBank networks in Japan.

eSIM Japan has a choice of fixed data, daily data, and unlimited data options. On a daily data plan, you’ll receive 3GB of data to use every day, for between 5 and 90 days. Fixed data plans are the conventional choice, offering between 3GB and 30GB for a set period. And finally, the unlimited data plan lasts for your chosen length, and offers technically unlimited data. The catch is that only a portion of it will be high-speed, after which you’ll drop down to slower speeds. There are three tiers, Lite, Basic and Pro, with different amounts of high-speed data.

Prices for the plans start at US$3.99, going up to US$147.99. Getting onboard is quick and easy — pay online and a QR code is instantly delivered to your email.
