- Chrome: Ctrl-Shift-J (Windows), Cmd-Opt-J (Mac)
- Firefox: Ctrl-Shift-K (Windows), Cmd-Opt-J (Mac)

Use a VPNEdit
For this example, the program used is SoftEther, which runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, FreeBSD and Solaris, and can be downloaded here.
1. Download & install the SoftEther VPN Client program.
2. Open the program from your desktop or start menu. It should look generally like this. Click the option circled in red.
3. Something like this should pop up. To play a game only avaliable in Japan, you'll want to select a host that is in the region of Japan, like the one circled in red. Generally the fastest option usually has a high line speed and low ping. Occasionally a host or two will be down; if this is the case, simply try another one.
4. Double-click on the host you want to use. You may get the pop-up below asking which type of protocol to use.
5. You should get a pop-up while your computer attempts to connect to the host informing you of status. This pop-up will close once you connect. Next, you'll get another popup informing you of progress in retrieving an IP address from the host. Once this is done, the pop-up will disappear momentarily after.
6. Now you can open up DMM and you will be recognized as logging on from a Japanese server! Go to DMM and go to the netgame section circled below.
7. On the netgame page, click the following genre section, and then the Shinken!! icon as shown on the next page below.
8. If you are not logged onto your DMM account or you have not before played the game, this is the screen you will see. Click the large blue button to start the game!
