eSIM Unlimited Data for Japan Travel | Review

January 11, 2023

First time to try e-SIM with Unlimited Data during my trip to Japan and it is the best travel hack.

I used to bring pocket wifi or buy local SIM cards whenever I travel for vacation or workcation. During the recent trip to Japan, I chanced upon the e-SIM Unlimited Data offer via Klook and it saved my travel.

Once you arrive in Japan (or your destination country), TURN OFF your primary e-SIM (Globe) to make sure you won’t be charged Roaming and TURN ON the Travel e-SIM.

When I arrived in Japan, I turned it on as soon as we landed and I got instantly connected.

Why I love it:

  • Instant confirmation! I booked the day before my flight and received the QR code the same night.
  • It is much more convenient to use compared to pocket wifi – I don’t need to worry about charging another gadget and carrying it around. My minimalist heart is so happy! Strolling around is a lot lighter and I was able to save power bank juice for my phone.
  • Saves me time and energy. No need to look for the pick-up kiosks. After we got our luggage and went through customs check, we were able to navigate Google Maps from the airport to the hotel.
  • I don’t need to worry about sending the pocket wifi back to the airport (en route back to Manila).
  • Data connectivity is strong and stable. I can watch videos, upload clips/Instagram Reels and even share data connection with my friend.

I hope you find this post helpful.
