This series of reviews is dedicated to mobal, an interesting SIM card vendor.
They basically provide plans for both travelers and residents, which is a huge advantage compared to their competitors. In addition, the choice of the maximum usage period of the SIM cards proposed is kind of impressive. Indeed, you can use your SIM card for 8, 16, 30, 60 days and more !
But the most powerful argument of this vendor is definitely the data amount. It is apparently unlimited with possibility to be used for tethering.
Tethering may be useful especially for SIM card with unlimited data because those are sometimes a bit expensive. That is to say, if you are going to Tokyo with someone else, you may consider buying only one SIM card for two that you could use with a rental pocket wifi in order to share your connection, and divide the price by two.

At a first glance, Japan Unlimited SIM 60 Day looks like a bit expensive.
However, unlimited data, a tethering option, voice calls and texting are available. That makes all the difference with other SIM cards. I believe this plan is targeting long-term tourists or any person who is to stay longer than 2 months for a specific professional or vocational reason.
It may be a very satisfactory plan for exchange students or interns willing to enjoy Internet before their first contract with a mobile provider for example.
