While travelling around Japan would one of the pocket-wifi devices be advisable?
14 days, unlimited data is just over $100NZ
Spending time travelling around, not just in Tokyo.
Staying at airBnBs.
I would appreciate any opinions
It will save your phone's battery life vs hotspotting, so don't see why not.
We are getting one, based on our research it is recommended plus we have two teenagers who are very keen to share their experience so this option should work well for us.
I went with Japan Wireless, pick up at airport, here is a 25% discount code I found on a travel blog that worked for us. JPW001
I'd really recommend it yes. While not cheap, compared to the overall cost of the holiday it's relatively small and saves you a lot of phone battery life. GPS in particular is so helpful there, even in their larger train stations for example, it's certainly not ideal to run low on phone battery.

Thanks team, ordered one!
The little things make the biggest difference.
Was in Japan last month for 2 weeks and used an esim from Ubigi for around $25 NZD for 10gb. Worked really well. If you've got 3-4 plus that need data pocket wifi would probably be suitable.
We(2 of us) just came back from Japan(3 weeks travel) and we used "Airalo" eSim data each of us, it has app and you can top-up data if you run out, works all data ok, we have been all around Japan. eSim very easy to buy and install. if you decide to use please use my referral code "OLEG2244". I bought 20Gb plan but used 10Gb only for 3 weeks but we also used WiFi accomodations. Our option of a pocket-wifi device was too, but we though it is expensive
