What people are saying about Kanazawa

I booked several tours and needed internet for the trips. Very user-friendly, just switch on and connect to the mobile phone - simple as it is. Note: Battery does not last all day (when the device is always on). I would recommend either switching off the device when not in use or taking a charger with you.

Picked up, switched on, connected - and done. The whole time of my stay in Japan I had perfect internet through the router.
