Netflix finally came to Japan.
I’m excited not only because I can see more movies, but I’m happy for my students who are learning the Japanese language outside of Japan.
I know they’re always looking for some way to watch Japanese movies, but there were not many ways. So they were using illegal websites to stream them.
I was feeling sad because I know there’s demand but because there was no system, Japan lost a good chance to introduce their culture, and my students were also sad because the illegal movies were low quality sometimes, and they didn’t feel good. They were ready to pay some money to watch it officially but there was no way.
I won’t say Netflix is the best way, but this is one of a good start.
I really hope Netflix Japan will share Japanese movies and dramas to Netflix in other countries.
