To watch Netflix in Japan, simply connect to a VPN.

It’s as easy as that. If you want to stream Netflix in Japan than all you need to do is connect to a VPN service. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too complicated. A VPN, which stands for virtual private network, will create a tunnel between you and the service you connect to. So what? What does it all mean? It’s simple, once you connect to a VPN Netflix will think that your internet connection is originating from one of the several countries where Netflix is now supported. Which country you connect to Netflix from is entirely up to you. Different countries have different streaming libraries, but connecting to a VPN to watch Netflix in Japan will allow you to switch between whatever country you want allowing you access to the Netflix streaming libraries from all countries Netflix now supports.

Great! Now what VPN should you use?

You have lots of choice on the internet when it comes to choosing a VPN. You should look for one that is reasonably priced, fast and reliable, and has lots of countries to choose from for server locations (this is what lets you change between different countries libraries). My personal favorite, the VPN I’ve used for a few years now, is StrongVPN. StrongVPN worked excellent for me while I lived in Korea and I’m positive it will work well for you watching Netflix in Japan. Setup is extremely easy with StrongVPN, once you’ve subscribed to their service they will walk you through the extremely easy process of connecting to the VPN. Once you’re connected you can head over to Netflix and enjoy streaming Netflix in Japan all you want.

    Yeah, that’s great if you have a credit card from a U.S. or Canadian or U.K. bank with a U.S. or Canadian or U.K. billing address.(The three countries with Netflix) The VPN is the easy part.
