My wife and I are currently visiting Okinawa and didn't want to pick up a sim card so we decided to try an eSIM. We both have UNLOCKED Galaxy Fold 3's from the United States. First, I should say, I am not very tech savy however, my wife was tired and fell asleep! :( I tried to use only the QR code-that didn't work properly. My phone showed me connected to docomo carrier but I still didn't have internet. I spent a lot of time trouble shooting and watching YouTube tutorials. I feel like I became an expert changing APN settings. Finally, I went back through the get your guide app and followed the APN settings under the details tab then chose IIJ network carrier (I think). Once I did that, it worked great! I did a google search test to verify my connection. I almost gave up all hope!

An absolutely breathtaking tour of the Mt. Fuji lakes district with the excellent Umer, a patient and knowledgeable guide. My teens and I absolutely loved this tour and have already recommended it to our friends.

Easy to use. The voucher provides a ticket to the observation deck. Nothing more, nothing less.

Great way to see Tokyo and take the wheel in one of the most congested cities in the world

Excellent. Super fast data speed. Will definitely purchase again.
