You can also have a data SIM card with a local Japanese phone number posted to your address in Australia, to the hotel you are staying at in Japan, or you can pick them up from the airport after you land.
Internet access anywhere allows you to use Google Maps, translation apps and check train connections and timetables which can be invaluable on your trip (not to mention uploading photos to make your friends and family jealous!).
