Welcome to my Japan Essentials page!
In this page you find some of the most useful products to use during your stay in Japan. I'll try to keep this page updated with the best products I'll find, and also those with the best price compared to their quality, but keep in mind that these are not the only good products in the market. You are very likely to find some other excellent products that are not referred here. Always compare the products characteristics and prices before making your decision 😉
This card is essential if you want a hassle-free travel. Mainly used for transportation, you can also use it for shopping at convenience stores and some restaurants. Buy it online and pick up the card once you get at the airport in Japan, ready to use.
Japan Rail Pass
The best solution for unlimited travel in the shinkansen. It is a multi-use discounted ticket available for 7, 14 or 21 days. Cheaper than buying several long distance tickets.
Docomo SIM Card
Local 4G SIM card from Japan's predominant mobile operator. Very useful if you just need internet on your mobile phone. Different packages available according to the amount of data needed.
