Recommended Rental Pocket Wifi Shops for Visitors to Kyoto


1. Actual Situation of the Rental Shops in Kyoto

Are there any recommended rental pocket WiFi shops available in Kyoto ?

Visitors Question

Actually, only one rental shop is available in Kyoto.

But, unfortunately, it may not be easy to get there for visitors.
The biggest problem is that the shop has no English website.

So, I recommend not this shop but other visitor-friendly online shops.

Locals Answer

As I mentioned above, only one rental shop is available in Kyoto City.

The shop is Netage Pasokon Kobo Kyoto-teramachi Shop.

Although, the shop is located about 5 minutes’ walk to the southwest of Hankyu Railway Kyoto-Kawaramachi station, it may not be easy to get there, especially for oversea visitors.

The biggest problem is that the shop has no English website. Moreover, only telephone is accepted if you want to reserve.

So, I recommend not this shop but other online shops for visitors.

Well, any visitor-friendly online rental shops available ?

Visitors Question

Yes, Wi-Fi RENTAL Store” and “fon rental WiFi” are espcially recommended because of not only reasonable rates but also satisfying visitors support in English.

Locals Answer

These online shops have, of course, English website.

And, it is very easy to pick up and return.

If you order the WiFi router online, then, you can pick it up at airports (or hotels) when you arrive, and just drop it in any postbox all over the Japan to return (of course, the postbox is available at any airports, too).

In other words, you can use the pocket WiFi device whole time while you stay in Japan.

It is very convenient, isn’t it ?

The followings are the details of those rocommended shops.
