The other way to get Japanese music is using iTunes Japan; however, if you don't have credit card with a Japanese billing address, you can't buy Japanese songs through iTunes Japan. But there is a solution. Instead of credit card, you can use "iTunes Japan Music Card" to buy music through iTunes Japan!
Get card from J-Box!
This shop can send "scan of music card number" via email, so you don't have to pay shipping fee!!!
Do you know how to get to Japanese iTunes store?
Simply launch your iTunes music store and scroll side bar to the bottom of the page. Then you will find "my store" at the bottom, so just change the country to Japan.
#Or just click links on my blog.(You can see the direction at the bottom)
In Japanese iTunes store, make sure to "sign out" your account at the beginning. Then, hit "redeem" button on the upper right of music store and redeem the code of your iTunes music card.
In the process of redeeming, you will be asked Japanese address and phone number. If you have Japanese friends, you can borrow their address and phone number and use it as "dummy".
If you don't have any Japanese friends or acquaintance, ask J-Box to borrow their adress and phone number(You can ask them only if you buy iTunes Japan Music Card through J-Box!).
When you finish making new account in iTunes Japan, it is the time to enjoy music on Japanese iTunes store!!!
# Of course, you can also download free music on iTunes Japan!
As you may know, iTunes Japan offers you the 30 seconds preview of all songs.
You can enjoy this service before getting iTunes Japan music card!!!
Did you already find?
On my blog, you can find links on album titles. If you click the links, you can go to iTunes directly. On the other hand, some album titles don't link to iTunes because the album doesn't exist on iTunes. However, If you hit "☆Check XXX's works on iTunes", you can find other albums of the artist on iTunes.
