I am living in Japan, then why it is showing My IP address from different country?

How it can be changed?

Proxy server Jul 6, 2005

Maybe your ISP is using a proxy server and "hiding" your actual IP address. Ask your ISP about this.

IP range Jul 6, 2005

Block of (A Class, B Class, C class or subclasses) legitimate IP addresses are given to organisations/companies etc. Since there organisations are known, their geograffical locations are also known.
Most likely, the ISP which you are connected through is using IP ranges from a different IP block which is located other than Japan. Therefore, when you query you will see your IP identified in a different geograffical location.
If you want to change it, you may ask your ISP to provide a different legitimate IP geograffically belonging to Japan.

Good luck...
