Anybody who visited Japan last year able to share the name and contact details for the Hyakuri Peace Towers
Thanks for the contact number.
Any advice on which satnav system to use or is a mobile WiFi hub worth while ?

Thank you for the super quick response.
How quickly does Mr Umezawa respond to the phone call, should we phone him in advance ? I hope his English is better than my Japanese. lol.

He's quick, 10-15min max.
We (3) were lucky enough to have a ride on the back of his mini-pick-up from gate to the towers :)
He speaks English quite well to communicate.
By the way - try to have some treats - it makes him very happy. I gave him few of Polish candies (always good to have some sweets from your country to share with locals in Japan - they appreciate and love it!)

Good idea about taking some sweets. Last time I visited Japan I ran out of business cards because everybody we meet exchanged their cards, it seemed like they were collecting them. lol

We used wifi router from here:
https://en.wifi-rental-store.jp
Got 50GB for 3 persons for 12 days, paid 9400 Yen. (white one with insurance and extra powerbank- very useful!)
Having it online every day including some calls (whatsapp, messenger) - we managed to use 35GB, so quite a good deal I would say ;)
Easy pick-up and return @ Narita Airport.
