I am testing this service because I will be soon living in Tokyo for 5 months. My knowledge of Japanese language is pathetic, but I would love to have my dose of anime in the evening, so my question is: Does Crunchyroll works in Japan? Or should I also look for good VPN service?

No, while the site works, you won't be able to watch any of the series except for RWBY.

Keep in mind that the use of a VPN for that purpose is a violation of the /ToS, and could result in your account being banned. The exception being if you're living on a U.S. Military base or other foreign soil, such as an embassy.

you could simply watch it on TV (depending on the series, you'll need a cable subscription), on Niconico, or rent it for cheap.
possibly on hulu japan and netflix, too.

Niconico is out of the question. It is really horrible app.
TV and cable too.
My plan is to use PS TV connected to 24″ monitor, LAN, Samsung Level speaker.
