You may be familiar with services like Hulu or the BBC iPlayer which let you watch TV shows on the Internet.
Japan has a similar service which is provided by Yahoo, it’s called “Gyao”. Gyao’s address ishttp://gyao.yahoo.jp/ . Unfortunately Gyao only works in Japan! If you try to access Gyao outside of Japan you’ll see an error that looks like this:
The Japanese means: “This service is only available inside Japan”. That’s a shame because, although the TV programs here don’t have any subtitles, they can still be a useful resource of Japanese language learners. Fortunately, there’s a way round that! However you need to pay a little money.
You need to use a VPN service, such as www.vpntraffic.com only $5 per month
Once you’ve signed up with vpntraffic, you need to connect to one of their Japanese VPN servers. They give you instructions for doing this. vpntraffic will even work on your iPhone or iPad which both have Gyao apps you can use.
Once you’ve setup and connected your VPN go to http://gyao.yahoo.co.jp .
You should be able to find shows to watch by clicks on the pictures. Gyao also has many Korean and American shows which are subtitled.
Some shows also require a fee to watch, or for you to sign in with a Yahoo Japan account.
In the future I may write an article showing you how to navigate around Gyao. You can use japan vpn to watch japan stream.
