Best coverage Japan 2017/7/21 00:33
I'm traveling by Campervan in Japan for a month, and want good coverage all over Japan, not only the cities.

I need around 10-15gb of data, because I also have to do some work in the meantime.

What is the best simcard I can take? Maybe also a solution with unlimited Facebook / Whatsapp?

From where to where?

No need it if use "free" wi-fi spots.

A lot of "Road side stations(Michi-no Eki)" provided.

Basically, any cheap SIM(or Wi-Fi Router) rent service companies are using
major telecommunications carriers line, so no big influence on reception.
Major telecommunications big 3 carriers in Japan is "docomo(NTT)", "SOFTBANK" and "au(KDDI)".

For only one month, you can choose by price(data plan).
The basic performance is the same even with the type to rent before coming to Japan.
They put a banner(as ad) or rent info on the website of the int'l airports and tourist info in Japan,
( int'l airports : NRT,HND,KIX,CTS,NGO,FUK and more)

also, travel agencies web in out of Japan.

I think that also car rent company has worthful information, though? (No asking?)

Neither Facebook nor WhatsApp are a big deal in Japan, so you won't find any perks like that. If you really need 15 GB for your work while on the go, (I'd bet you don't) mobile data is ill suited for that.
