Overall rating

4.9 / 5

based on 218 reviews

Highly recommended. We landed at Kansai airport and pick up location is right at the entrance with large English signage. Picked up pocket wifi and it was ready to use. The battery lasted almost 12 hours and comes with a charger cable in case. The coverage and speed are excellent. Quite cheap compared to other providers and sim. I was given two days extension free of charge out of courtesy. Very polite helpful personnel at the store

Meeting place perfect only a short walk to Sumo stable info from guide was informative and the question and answer period was fun. Pictures are okay to take but be respectful and follow directions from guide during training. Group pic was fuzzy but was able to take individual photos so no worries. Would do again!!! It was intense watching but good intense. Thanks so much.

Lets just say that it was one of the best decision we made in planning our trip to Japan, the best part is that our photographer speaks english and was very accommodating, it was a wonderful experience!

Lets keep this simple its a mint AF time one the best ways to get fully twisted and meet some amazing people who also enjoy giving it a solid crack

Antonio was a great guide we toured Ueno Park and Yanaka
