eSims for Japan can be difficult, but with Saily from NordVPN, you’re in for smooth sailing. With a minimalist approach to eSIMs, their five plans are tailored to short-term visitors to the country — just choose the data you need and you’re ready to go. They roam to the reliable NTT Docomo network, so you can expect strong, reliable coverage all over Japan.

Saily has a very simple approach to their eSIMs — just tell them how much data you need. Four of their plans are 30-day plans, starting at 3GB for US$6.99, and going up to 20GB for US$22.99. Their final plan is a sampler, 1GB for a week at US$3.99. Choose the amount of data you need and buy — no fuss at all.

And once you’re ready to get connected, Saily makes it easy. Everything is handled through the Saily app, and you simply open it up and activate your eSIM. Follow the app’s instructions, and you’ll be set to surf. And you can expect decent speeds too — our testing had them outputting solid numbers.
