Pick Them Up At The Airport!

The Tokyo Speed Wi-Fi rental set that includes both POCKETALK and a Wi-Fi router allows people to pick up their devices from places like QL liner counters, post offices, and JAL ABC counters at any major airport in Japan, such as Narita Airport or Haneda Airport.

We recommend the QL liner counter, as it’s open for an hour past the last plane. Even if you arrive late, you can rest assured that you'll get what you paid for!

This rental set can also be delivered to places like your hotel or your friend’s house in Japan, so you can choose to have it delivered in a way that's most convenient for you.

*The image above is just a picture. It will actually be wrapped and in a package when you receive it.

With this, you shouldn’t have any troubles communicating with locals during your trip. Enjoy communicating with everyone around you!

Announce Your Arrival On Social Media!

Comes with super strong Wi-Fi that can handle up to 10 devices simultaneously!

Now that you’ve arrived to Japan, it's time to inform all your friends and family about your safe arrival. The amazing portable Wi-Fi device that comes with this rental set can handle up to 10 devices all at once, so if you share it with your family or friends, the cost per person will be extremely low!

Furthermore, there’s no data limit* and it can go up to 440Mbps, making it perfect for sharing photos and even videos! Use it as freely and often as you want.

Did we mention that the battery lasts for an astounding 10.5* hours?

Enjoy Your Trip Like Never Before!

With this POCKETALK and Wi-Fi router set, you won't have to give up exploring because of a lack of communication! Remember when you couldn't enjoy shopping because you didn't understand what the shop staff said, when your order got mixed up because you couldn't explain the fine details, or when you couldn't haggle for a lower price? Well, all those horrible experiences will become nothing more than a dream! It'll come in really handy when you need to ask for directions to a well-known place. Maybe you can even spill out feelings that you were never able to tell before?

Purchase this rental set and challenge yourself to do things that you couldn’t do before!

Return Everything Through The Airport's Post Box!

Of course, anyone would want to use these devices right up until they had to get on the plane to return home! Well, with this rental service, you can return these devices by putting them into a designated letter packet, and then stuffing that into a post box at the airport. This means that you can use it right up until you enter the airport gates, so go crazy and use away! Note that you can return the devices at any post box, not just the ones at the airport.

While you can return these devices at places like QL liner counters, you'll have to fill out some paperwork, so it's recommended to return them through post instead.
