Today we’re going to be showing you how to make a Japanese iOS account. I’m Nihongo Gamer with Cathy Cat. We’re going to be solving a problem, basically. I wanted to play Uchi-hime at home, but I had a German iPad. So what did you do? I kind of deleted everything, completely restarted it, and then it asks you for Japanese and so on. There is a easier way, than deleting everything on your iPad. I have multiple different accounts. I just log in depending on which games I want to download. You need to get to the Japanese store. The way to do that is open up Safari. And what you need to do is search for a Japanese App. A game that’s only on the Japanese store. -Like Uchi-hime.
-Yep. Try Uchi-hime. So if you click on this link, you will be brought to the Japanese store. – “Not available on your store”
– That’s what I had. Click “change store” and this is what you need. So you’re in the Japanese store, but you’re not logged in because we don’t have a Japanese login. so the game actually never showed up. Go back to Safari, and click on the link again and hopefully it will bring us to the game page. Here we go, finally. Because it’s a free game, if you click “get”, we should be able to buy it without having any Japanese money. We have to make the account still. So it’s saying you don’t have an account. So this is where you can make a Japanese account. because we’re going from the Japanese store. -So click “create new apple ID”
-Don’t cry! Choose new account, Japan. Next, if you accept the terms and conditions, You can click agree. You almost clicked cancel. -Oh no, I changed my mind!
-There’s a “South Park” episode about that. So this is where you need to type in your information. Any e-mail address is fine. You don’t need a Japanese e-mail. Once you get through the e-mail stage, you’ll be asked for a credit card. but there is an option for none. In the past there were times when that option wasn’t there. You just have to restart the process again, and it will just appear. Now this is the tricky part. You need to get yourself a Japanese address. We can’t give you a Japanese address, obviously. but, a Japanese address will work. That’s the hint. That’s the only hint we can give you. So once you’ve found an address and typed it in, We get an e-mail. So we’re clicking the verify ID button, and… Verified. Congratulations. Start shopping. and I think if we just click install, – It’s downloading now.
– It’s downloading. Doesn’t that mean I can get my German account and get my German Apps? You can. You could throw it in the river. and if you bought a new iPad and logged in with your old e-mail address, all your stuff would still be there. Just none of your saved data. A lot of Japanese games are free. -You just need an account.
-Why did I delete everything? So the one last thing you might want to know, How do you get back to your other accounts? So everything is in Japanese now. but if you go down to the bottom and click ID, and just sign out. When you sign in with your German account, it will say this is only for the German store. You’ll get logged back into the German store. or the UK store, or the American store. – So there you have it.
– Now I know. -Thank you
-No problem. That was really really helpful actually. -I need to get my stuff back now from the German store.
-It can be done. I hope that video helped you guys. Don’t forget to comment and subscribe to channel if you haven’t already -If there is going to be a tutorial list, it’ll be there.
