Generally, for the most part, all you need to access blocked Japanese Games and Websites is a Japanese VPN. However, there are times when having a VPN is not enough. The game or site will detect what language the browser is using and block you if you aren’t using a Japanese version.
Step 1) Identifying the Issue
The issue is very basic. You browse to a website and it blocks you because the browser you’re using is not in Japanese. What this means is not that the browser can’t read Japanese, but that the browser application itself is not in Japanese. If you’ve ever played Japanese video games online, where you have to go to the website to login and then launch the game from the site, you’ll already know that you pretty much always need to be using Internet Explorer. Therefore, the whole goal is to get a Japanese version of Internet Explorer one way or another.
Step 2) Installing IE in Japanese

Step 10) As long as you are browsing through a VPN, you can go here and play DragonNest. (Make sure to browse to the site with IE)
