TOEFL In Japan
Information About The TOEFL Exam in Japan
The answer to that question is “YES” — you CAN take The TOEFL In Japan. As of: Saturday — September 26th, 2020 — There ARE Indeed TOEFL Testing Dates & TOEFL Testing Locations In Japan. There are also multiple Official TOEFL Testing Centers In Japan where one can take The Internet-Based Version of The TOEFL Exam. (This is the standard version of The TOEFL Exam in 2021.)
As with anywhere in the world — The availability & reliability of The TOEFL Exam in Japan is based on many factors: Political Atmosphere, Military Conflict — and most-recently — The Threat Of Pandemic.
However, the main factors that determine whether or not The TOEFL will be available in any area is based on: Demand For The Exam & Availability Of Viable Testing Centers.
Even considering all of this — there has, consistently, been multiple locations where one can take the TOEFL Exam throughout Japan. And The TOEFL Exam has been available in Japan — without interruption — throughout the years. Even with the fake “Covid Crisis” hoax of 2020 — The TOEFL Exam continues to be made available in Japan, (although it does seem to have greatly reduced the number of available dates for the next few months).
As of the the date listed above — The Price Of The TOEFL Exam In Japan is: $235 (US Dollars) — or approximately: 24,807.10 Japanese Yen (JPY).
It may be possible to pay for the exam directly at The Official Testing Center, but the standard way of registering for The TOEFL Exam, is to register on-line, using a Credit or Debit Card.
As stated above — it may be possible to register & pay for the exam directly at The Official Testing Center where you will be taking the exam — but you need to be able to access your account later, so that you can see your scores and access other services. Therefore, if you register directly at The Official Testing Center, then you will need to make sure that the person who is taking your money thoroughly explains all of this to you.
If you have a Debit or Credit Card, then you can register in the traditional way, by creating your account on ETS and paying through their website. Doing it this way will ensure that you know the information that you will need in order to access your account at a later time, for whatever reason.

The answer to this question is: “Yes” — technically it is POSSIBLE to take The TOEFL At Home. But I HIGHLY recommend NOT taking what is referred to as “The TOEFL Home Edition”. There are many reasons for this which you can read about in much greater detail here.
The article linked above also contains a video that I made, explaining many of the concerns which I had about the “TOEFL Home Edition” when it first was released. But since the making of the video — I have received MANY reports from people who lost their money on the exam because of technical difficulties with the company which monitors you while you take the exam. And also because of the fascistic ways that they treat people during the exam. You can read about all those potential problems here — TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition.

The directions that are presented on that page are to the best of my ability, and are far better than that which is presented on the ETS website. As I am not affiliated with any of the Testing Centers, I do not have, and thus can not provide any other contact information.
