So, from my understanding, I am able to watch Crunchyroll while in Canada/US, but since I am now currently in Japan, Crunchyroll doesn't have the rights to let me watch videos while here in Japan?

I want to watch Usagi Drop, but it is unavailable in my region. Is there a way to watch Usagi Drop here on Crunchyroll while in Japan, or do I find another way to watch it?

not a mod but due to licensing limitations in japan you can not watch the shows because you can legally watch them on t.v. there. Cr has to filter out all japan ip's so your unable to watch any shows from cr when your in japan, that's just the paper work night mare that cr has to put up with.

As far as I know these (CR Premium Members group forum) are the only shows available from CR in Japan right now and I believe you need to download the apps in order to watch them...

How is your Japanese? Usagi Drops is an easier one to understand if your learning. My suggestion would be Hulu JP, from what I understand, they have a lot of anime on it, but very doubtful if they have subtitles. Hulu JP will also have Hollywood movies as well. I know there is a PS3 app for it, if you have a JP PSN account. You should be able to check it out on PC as well.
