    am trying to purchase a app only available in japan.
    once i use a vpn to purchase using my ID , app store says the ID is only valid for purchase in the country i reside in.

    You need a Japanese credit card or gift card, which you can use to create a Japanese account. You don't need a VPN.

    You don't need a VPN anywhere in the process, including during the creation of a Japanese iTunes account.
