Two months from now, I will be headed to Japan for a 2 week visit, as I am illiterate in the Japanese language, I would have to reply on Crunchyroll to get my daily anime fix. Will I have any viewing issues during my trip?

Unfortunately, yes, you will have trouble

The region restrictions come in as part of the streaming licenses from the publisher side, and CR uses your current IP address to decide what you can/can't see, so when you're travelling, you're subject to the local restrictions. I think nearly all of the titles on CR are blocked from Japan at the moment.

Everything but RWBY, if I remember correctly.

Yes, the only show we are currently able to offer in Japan is RWBY.


Either way, enjoy your stay in Japan! You can do lots of awesome stuff here, other than watching anime.
