Playing GMS from Japan, VPN not working so far

Anyone know if it is still possible to play GMS from Japan, my buddy is on tour there for the next 7 months and I told him to use VPN but when he gets to channel selection it just says "Having trouble logging in? blah blah blah" and he cant connect. We tried GhostVPN and Hot Spot Shield so far.

I think ExpressVPN works, you can try it out if you like. It's a paid service but it's pretty cheap and it's free the first month, i use it to get American netflix, works like a charm!

Dang i must catch the bear too, ive been using overpriced one (astrill) for almost two years now. And it charges extra for using it on multiple devices plus i need more Chinese tweaks to make gms work here...

I can confirm that Hotspot Shield does not work.
I can also confirm that as of about 3 days ago, Tunnelbear ( worked in South Korea. Make sure to set your country to the USA or another country that GMS is available in. After you turn Tunnelbear on, but before you open up MS, I recommend you check out and double check that your location is the country you want to be in.
