Why Sakura Mobile?

Japan’s biggest network

We operate under Docomo network, Japan’s most reliable network with the widest coverage area. NTT Docomo network has been serving the largest number of Japanese since the beginning of cell phone history.

Fast LTE data

Every provider claims LTE connections up to 988Mbps or more, saying this is the reason why their internet is fast. In fact, it is the server that is the key determinant of fast internet. Our backbone servers are much stronger so it will deliver you a real fast internet performance.

Bring your own device

You can use your existing phone (your phone needs to be unlocked). Our tech support team is experienced at handling non-Japanese phones.

Data rollover

If you didn’t use all of your data during the month, it will be automatically rolled over to the next one!

iOS personal hotspot and android’s tethering function are supported. PdaNet app is also supported.
No activation is required for our data SIM cards. It’s ready to use out of the package. Open the package, insert the SIM (a SIM pin is provided), and do the setting for APN, don't worry it will take less than a minute to do.
If you exceed your data limit, your internet speed will slow down, but you will never actually be without internet access.
