Hey everyone. Recently I have been trying to buy things from Bandai's Japanese store but I an running into a problem with their membership. In order to sign up on their site you need to put in a Japanese address, there is no section in the drop down box other than prefectures of Japan. Is this like having a Japanese PSN in the states where the address is really just for show and I can still order things or am I just out of luck?

I am able to order things from sites like Amazon.jp without too much trouble but I'm unfamiliar with Bandai's site.

Thanks for any help!!

if web site set up like that its to stop you from ordering things from there they only ship to Japan only
use play-Asia eBay.jp or Amazon.jp

I hope this helps you from amazon.

If you wish to buy digitally then you could make an xbox live Japanese account like i did by making new email and changing the local on your system. Just follow the set up like you would when creating any normal live account and you will end up with one like mine.

Thanks for the help guys. I haven't been able to find my items available on anything other than Bandai's site so I'll just try to snag it when i can find it.

Cecilthedarkknight234: Thanks for the site! I already have an Amazon.jp account but some of the related posts to the one you sent me were very informative and helpful.
