With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
Terrace House is one of the hottest shows from Japan and if you’re looking for a reliable way to watch it outside Japan then this is the guide you need.
In this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch Terrace House from anywhere in the world on Netflix.
Netflix is quite possibly the best online streaming service and the Japanese site now has more content than every other region of Netflix, even the United States Netflix site!
Terrace House is released first on Japanese Netflix and they have access to more of the older seasons than any other region.
Below I’ll show you how you can tap into this and watch Terrace House from anywhere in the world.
Terrace House Japan
Terrace House has taken Japan by storm over the last few years and if you’re a fan of Japanese culture and TV shows (and who isn’t!) then you’ll certainly have heard the buzz about Terrace House.
Terrace House follows a similar pattern to many shows in the west. Throw a group of late teens and early twenties into a house together who don’t know each other and film their antics.
What sets Terrace House apart from similar western shows is Japanese Culture.
Unfortunately though on most Netflix sites they don’t have the same access to Terrace House as the Japanese Netflix website does. They get older series and newer episodes before anyone else.
By using an app called a VPN from a provider such as StrongVPN you can tap into the Japanese Netflix website and watch Terrace House as if you were in Japan.
Below I’ll show you how.
How to watch Terrace House
To watch Terrace House on Netflix you’ll need to get yourself a VPN. These are offered by hundreds of different companies.
I recommend StrongVPN because they have a risk-free 30-day money back guarantee meaning even if you can’t get it working you can just get your money back.
Most VPN services don’t work with Japanese Netflix, but StrongVPN is one of few that does. Follow the instructions below to watch Terrace House:
- Visit the StrongVPN website by clicking here and sign up for their service.
- Once you’ve signed up go to the VPN apps section of their website and download their app for your device.
- Open the app and login when needed.
- Press on Best Available and then select Japan.
- Press the Connect button if the app doesn’t automatically connect.
It will take around 15 seconds for the app to connect.
Once it’s connected there is nothing more to do. All you need to do is visit the Netflix website or open the Netflix app.
You can now search for ‘Terrace House’. You’ll notice you now have access to more seasons and latest episodes compared to your regular Netflix website.
When you’ve finished watching simply disconnect from the StrongVPN app. You can reconnect whenever you want to continue watching more Terrace House.
You can also watch other Japanese content on Netflix. It’s also worth connecting to a few other countries such as the US or UK as they have further exclusive content that can’t be found at other websites.
What is Terrace House
If you’re reading this guide you’re probably already aware of what Terrace House is. However, if you’ve stumbled across this article looking for new and interesting content then let me explain.
Terrace House is a Japanese series which is now a ‘Netflix Exclusive’. It first started way back in 2012 and ran until 2014. At this point it wasn’t all too famous and certainly not as popular as it is today.
Fast forward a few years to 2015 and Netflix has picked up the series which is now booming in popularity.
The original show started in a small terraced house (hence the show name) in the Shōnan area of Japan. Once Netflix acquired the show it was blinged up and broadcast from Tokyo first and then Hawaii in the United States.
2017 – current has seen the season titled “Terrace House: Opening New Doors” which is available now on Netflix with new episodes coming out currently.
