Partnering with HUB, Japan’s biggest British-themed pub chain, Mobal offer an alternative to sushi & noodles by providing an opportunity for SIM users to enjoy real ales & traditional fish & chips. For rugby fans in particular the knowledge that HUB bars all have large monitors for live sports as well as a familiar pay-at-the-bar system is a reassurance ahead of an assault-on-the senses trip of a lifetime for many.

Mobal, a long-time partner of Japan’s Softbank network, are the only company in the world providing Japanese Voice & Data SIMs with no contract or termination fees – delivered to your home before you travel. Noting the difficulty for tourists to get an inexpensive SIM in Japan, Mobal’s General Manager Tracey Lockley reflects that, “While most first-time travellers to Japan don’t consider a SIM a priority, it is only after hearing the horror stories of fellow travellers that they realise Japan is a different challenge. In the last year alone we’ve delivered to over 120 countries so the word is spreading!” Tracey adds, “With 400,000 rugby fans predicted to travel to Japan during the World Cup, we’re expecting demand to be high. My advice to visitors: Place your order now while stocks last!”.

In addition to the HUB Pubs Beer Voucher, the SIM bundles, which will be made available both to tourists & rugby fans, will also include a downloadable phrasebook/quirky Japan guide packed with discount coupons and a link to an app enabling Free Wi-Fi on the Softbank network.

Mobal offers a variety of SIMs for Japan, including Unlimited Data-only SIMs – great for maps, social media, and getting those all-important rugby scores – as well as Voice and Data SIMs with a real Japanese phone number – perfect for media & business visitors – & those who simply need to keep in touch easily with home. The free beer voucher and other bonus add-ons will be included free of charge with every SIM purchase. Delivery is free too – so visitors to Japan can start using data as soon as they arrive in Japan, and find their nearest sports pub to watch the match – pint in hand!
