Global roaming allows you to access the Internet in Japan using your own smartphone and current carrier from your home country.
It is very convenient since you only need to perform a few steps on your smartphone, but the daily allowed data volume is small, and can be very expensive.
This option is recommended for emergencies or for short term use. It is not recommended for longer use as it can become very costly.
Your contacts can call you with your usual number, so that you don't miss any important calls, but you may be charged with expensive roaming costs for both incoming and outgoing calls.
Many stations and airports in Japan have free Wi-Fi spots.
If you will be limiting your Internet use to stations and airports, using these free Wi-Fi spots may be the most economical.
You can access the Internet by contracting with a local network provider to use smartphones or Wi-Fi routers.
The contracts are usually for 2-3 years, and do not suit short-term use. You will also need to purchase a smartphone or Wi-Fi router provided by the carrier.
