    Yes, you can rent it from Airport.

    buying is so expensive.

    Buying is not expensive if you stay in Japan more than one month. The phone costs about 2500 yen, the charger 1200 yen + a prepaid card of 3000yen with unlimited mails.

    You should go to the Softbank shop in Ometesando (close to the Harajuku station). A few weeks ago, I posted on this group the contact details of a employee that works there and can speak English and can sell you a pre-paid phone.

    The prepaid phone you can get directly, but as far as I know the rules are very strict and you need a residence card in order to be aloud to buy it (but maybe this holds only true if you cant speak japanese well, like me).

    I know you can rent them at the airport, but they're quite pricey.
