    Has anyone found a cheap, reliable SIM (or phone rental) for Japan?

    I can rent or buy a SIM for my GSM, and perhaps rent a second phone for my wife. She'd settle for even an old-fashioned clam shell phone as long as it has voice and text--don't need data or smartphone.

    This Mobal deal (see link below) seems good, but I worry they stick-it-to ya with hidden fees. We'll be low-use, mostly for emergency only, so the free incoming calls and texts sounds good, as long as Mobal isn't a Yakuza front or something...

    I see also that Narita Airport's official site lists a whole mess of cell phone companies, but I need some editorial--any faves?
