    I was looking for an artist on the iTunes store and unsurprisingly they were not on there (its a visual kai band). Had a look on the Japanese iTunes Store and and found everything I was looking for! Great I thought :eek:

    I attempted to sign in to purchase but iTunes then informed me that my ID was only valid for purchases in the UK :(

    Is there any way I can purchase music from the Japanese iTunes store? :confused: I had a look online and someone said you had to change your Country to the correct one to purchase. But then it will be from a CC in the UK.... and plus they said then all your previous purchases in the other country become unavailable. Any easy way to do this?

    In order to make a purchase on a foreign iTunes Store, you will have to have credit card that was issued in that country.

    An iTunes gift card from another country along with a new Apple ID for that store works also.
