Default G2 D802

hi. looking to get the D802 unlocked online. but i live in Japan and am wodering if it will work here. they have the G2 available too but the problem is with rooting/roming Japanese phones. quite difficult and not much resources available.
the bands for the device are listed as:

UMTS 850/900/1900/2100
LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600

the bands used for my carrier in Japan are:

UMTS 800/2100
LTE 700/800/1500/1800/2100(main)

so from my limited understanding the D802 should work. please any of you with understanding of all this please advise.

also, what are all your thoughts of this device stand-alone as well as rooted/romed? how easy is it to root/unroot? how is rom availability? how is it compared to Nexus 5 (much easier to get a hold of here) anything else you could tell me.

much appreciated

PS by the way currently i have iphone 5 but am tired iOS/apple and want to switch to android.

4G shouldn't be an issue.. 3G will..for calls.. Does your carrier have any 2G or Japan has gone over that stage?? :P

As far as I know the 2100 mHz band is fast, but it has small range. That's the problem

right. and from what i've read on the internet about docomo (my provider) the 800 band is to extend coverages in rural areas. primarily where i live/commute/work. think i'll just go with L-01F (JP) model. hopefully there are still lots of resources that will work for that model too. and already found a root for it on here.
