4 best VPNs to use while in Japan for security & speed

IP VanishIP Vanish, distributed by StackPath, LLC, like CyberGhost and NordVPN, is not outrightly available for free. However, it provides new users with free access (limited) to its service for a brief period of time.

This VPN has a physical presence (servers) in over 60 countries across the globe, with an average of 20 servers in each location. Some of these servers are available in Japan and other Asian countries.

IPVanish is especially suited for small teams and emerging businesses, as it has the capacity to support up to ten connections at a time.

This means you can secure all your team members’ connections to every site (even restricted site), with a single IPVanish account.

Other key features of IPVanish include 24/7 customer support, 40,000+ shared IPs, multiplatform compatibility, zero traffic logging, optimized speed, P2P traffic (unlimited), connection protocols (IPsec, OpenVPN, etc.), money-back guarantee and more.

IPVanish’s free trial version is available to only customers using iOS devices. For others (Windows, Mac, and Android), there is a 7-day money-back guarantee on the cancellation of subscriptions. As such, you can use IPVanish for free for a period of one week.

IPVanish paid (subscription) plans starts at a relatively affordable rate. Other plans include the annual plan, the 3-month plan, and the monthly plan.



There are tons of free VPN services out there. However, virtually all these VPNs cause more harm than good, as most of them are designed to siphon (to third-parties) the data they are meant to protect. Hence, it is strongly recommended to stay away from them.

The reviewed VPNs while being paid services, allow you to use their services for free, albeit for a limited period of time, ranging from one week to one month to one-and-half month.

After this period, you can decide to subscribe to one of the paid plans, which are offered at affordable prices.

Free*: In this guide, ‘free‘ means being able to use the software for free for a limited period of time. There is a tremendous effort behind every VPN tool. Companies need to cover these costs via paid subscriptions.
