What is a Data SIM Card?

A Data SIM card is a specially designed SIM for short-term visitors to Japan. This type of SIM card enables users to connect to the fastest mobile internet available (225 Mbps) in Japan on a 4G network.

The term "Data" refers to the fact that this is an internet-only card. You will not be able to make calls to local numbers or to send text messages via local Japanese networks.

However, you will be able to do all of this and more, using applications such as Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, Messenger, etc. The SIM is compatible will all mobile devices. This is whether you need a standard, micro or nano SIM card.
