Asia: Best Prepaid SIM Card Options for Asia

We have a range of options for staying connected when travelling around Asia. You can either choose a local sim that covers a specific country or an international roaming sim that covers a  group of countries.

Local SIM Cards


1. Japan Prepaid Data SIM

This is the SIM to have if you are heading to Japan! You can't buy SIMs on the ground in Japan, and you save a big hassle by dealing in English with all the settings etc., sorted before you leave home. dataGO is the only company outside of Japan selling prepaid Japanese data SIMs.

  • 1) Fast, Reliable & Good-Coverage Network
  • 2) Plug & Connect: The SIM is preloaded with 3GB (no activation required)
  • 3) Very difficult for a foreigner to buy local SIM cards in Japan.
