What are the best sources to watch Japanese TV streaming?

Japan is a country that became popular for famous manga and anime series. Some of those include One Piece, which still runs and publishes new manga issues even after twenty years. But little did other people know that the country is not just for manga and anime. Japan is also great at producing great TV shows. Among these is the comedy-drama Gokusen, which is a live-action adaptation of the manga series of the same title. It was so great that it was the highest-rated show in its timeslot when it aired in the Philippines. Gokusen also had an Indonesian remake entitled Guruku Jagoan. But how about other territories without access to Japanese TV shows? Will they still be able to watch it?
