what software are you using to gain access to Japan's VPN?
The one I use does not always connect (SoftEther)
Hahaha. I had a feeling this would be my answer.
Guess I'll try Easy Hide Ip.
If any one has any reccomendations, I'm all ears.
I saw on their site, it hides your ip with an ip from which ever country they have on their list. Japan being one of them.
Have you try SecureVPN? It great for me but you have to pay for this.
