Yes. Setup another user on your PS3 (found in the Users XMB category all the way to the left of the XMB menu) and setup a Japanese PSN account on that new user when you sign up for the PSN (you probably need to put a Japanese address when creating the PSN account so Sony knows you need access to that specific store). Also, you might need to use Japanese currency or Japanese PSN cards for purchases. I don’t think the regional PSN Stores takes currency from regions it does not service (the U.S. Store only takes U.S. dollars and not UK Pounds or Japanese Yen, for example).

    omg those first two are dumb… when you set up an account, chose japan as where you live. Sony knows people want to do this and they know people will be selling these over seas (esp. China) so they let you chose your country.

    All you have to do is create another user and psn account and easy. I worn you though, any bought games/demos on ps store will likely be in japanese

    You’ll need to follow Mr. Toyota’s instructions. If you need to obtain a Japanese address, use a Youtube video tutorial as I’m guessing you can’t read Japanese (when you select Japan as your region the text will be in Japanese from there on in). Once you have that set up, you’ll need to find a way to add Japanese yen to your account. The method I’ve seen used the most is to buy Japanese PSN cards off gaming import sites or eBay.
