Renting a Cellphone in Kansai

by MoogieCha

Hi!

I'll be in the Kansai area for two weeks at the end of June. Does anyone know if/how I can rent a cellphone (or 'keitai') for the duration of my stay? What kind of guarantees will I have to make? Do I have to put down a large sum of money as a deposit? I figure I'll be using a pre-paid calling card kind of phone.

I'll be leaving in FIVE days, so any info on this before I go would be greatly appreciated, thanks VTers!

I think you will be better off if you use your own cel-phone IF it's SIM-UNLOCKED AND TRI (QUAD) band and buy a pre-pay SIM card there.

Go here and check out the different cell phone rental companies available at Kansai. Don't worry if some of the links come up in Japanese. There are English links on nearly every site and explains each company's policies on phone rental. The other poster is correct about the change in rules and SIM sales. Apparently some people were/are using them for nefarious purposes so the government has changed the rules on who and how they may be purchased.

Hi!

Thanks for all the help. I checked out the websites of various rental places at Kansai airport. However, it seems I'll need a credit card to make a rental at most of the outfits, which is a problem.

I don't suppose anyone would know of any other alternatives to getting the use of a cellphone for a couple of weeks? As I mentioned, I still have my old J-phone keitai from when I lived in Japan (10 months ago). Does anyone know if it's possible for me to go into a J-phone office and ask them to reactivate my phone for a short period? Or switch to a pre-paid phone option? I know I'm grasping at straws...

Appreciate all your help...

Travel Tips for Osaka

Osaka by night & lights in the trees

by globetrott

In the streets you will at some places see trees that are lighted at night, that looks quite funny and romantic. It has nothing to do with christmas, because we had been there in March.
We had 3 nights in Osaka and each night I made some stroll through the city and always felt perfectely safe.

The new pub chain that is here to stay

by Circle88 about Hub

Hubs have started popping up like mushrooms around Osaka. Anybody remember the old Pig and Wistle. Well that is no more but Hub has taken over the spot. There is one more Hub in the Namba-Shinsaibashi area and one more that I know of in Umeda. Mixed crowed with lots of japanese and foreigners.
5-7 is happy hour were all coctails are half price. They also offer Hub ale which has become one of my recent favorites. They also serve a variety of food but I wouldnt vouch for it though most of my friends actually like it. No dress code

FRENCH ON OSAKA

by kimbee_vergara about WINE MUSEUM OSAKA

This museum is a must-visit not only for the connoisseur of good wines but also for anyone who has an interest in this most historical of all beverages. As well as exhibits that show the history and development of wine, this museum also houses a restaurant that allows patrons to sample wines from around the world. And for those who prefer not to drink on an empty stomach, the restaurant also serves French cuisine. If you need a bottle or two of wine to take home, drop in at the wine mart where you will find a huge selection to choose from.

The Vessel As Beautiful As The Content

by nickinosaka

I'm a big fan of art galleries with interesting (and modern) architecture, so living a couple blocks from the Suntory Art Museum was a great chance to see some art in a really great building designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. They unfortunately don't have a permanent collection, so check their website to see what's there. They also have an Imax screen, which plays things ranging from documentaries to Christmas specials to mainstream Hollywood movies with big effects budgets (Spider Man 2 and Matrix Reloaded). There's also a nice coffee shop inside, and one of my favourite things to do in the area was to sit behind the museum and watch the sun set or the boats come in (usually the latter, after I got home from work around 11:30 pm).
