About Wasaike keeping the guest list
Similar to other licensed hotels and guesthouses, in order to keep records for police and fight against crimes and terrorism, we are obligated by law to keep a guest list, which includes full name, and passport ID of each guest.
We will handle these data confidentially and will only use them as permitted by data protection legislation, and for the purpose of keeping records for police and fighting against crimes and terrorism.
Upon arrival, please fill in guest form we will provide to you. Or email us your whole guest list together with the passport copy of the booking person in advance: email@example.com
Thanks for your understanding.
Where to find Pocket WiFi?
Rented Pocket WiFi for Japan can be picked up most probably in your home country in advance or at Japan airports.
Alternatively, you can buy IIJmio SIM cards and other prepaid SIM cards at Yodobashi Camera shops. Osaka has several branches of Yodobashi Camera. The main branch is the Yodobashi Camera Umeda Store (https://goo.gl/maps/A9TUcmos1cM2 ), which is just outside the north/central gate of JR Osaka Station, and also a short walk west of Hankyu Umeda Station. You’ll see the SIM cards on display roughly in front of you when you enter on the ground floor. There’s usually someone around who can speak English to help you (but you don’t really need help – the packages display the price, the volume of data and the usable period in English).
Please note that, if you are to purchase SIM cards or pocket WIFI in Japan, the shop might check your passport and visa to ensure you are a tourist. Please remember to bring necessary documents along.
