I love traveling alone and people often ask me why I am not scared to go off to a new place all by myself.
But I do get scared. I get scared when I do not have internet connection!!! Lol!
Pocket wifi is my best friend whenever I travel. I need Google Maps to give me directions, Google Translate to help me understand what I am eating, Safari to search for last-minute additions to my restaurant list in case I am still hungry after what I have in my itinerary, and all the messaging apps to keep in touch with friends and family.
In Japan, Global Advanced Communications is my best friend.
Go to their website, rent the device you want and pay for it online then they will deliver to your hotel a day before your arrival.
The front desk staff at Hotel Ryumeikan handed me this upon check-in.
Inside is my pocket wifi and charger with super easy to follow instructions.
Also included is a prepaid return envelope so you can just shoot everything in it
and drop it off at the airport's postbox on the day of your departure. Easy peasy!
Connection was fast and battery lasted for about 10 hours. If you are like me who spend 15 hours out eating everyday, bring a power bank.
I was confident and unafraid because I was with my little pocket wifi friend.
