If you are planning to spend more than 3 days in Japan, you can consider purchasing a Japan prepaid data SIM card (either 1GB data or unlimited data with speed restriction, that is valid for 14 days) for 4,310 yen (approximately S$50) instead of paying about S$18-22 daily to the local telcos (using StarHub as an example) for unlimited data usage in Japan.
