As of September 2017 it is no longer possible to set up an iTunes account for a different country on a PC or Mac. The account set up for a new Apple ID for Japan however, is possible from any country in the world using an iPhone or iPad.
Here is our step by step guide to create a Japanese Apple ID from outside of Canada…
- From the home screen on the iPhone or iPad select “App store”.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and sign out of an existing iTunes account.
- Choose any “FREE” App and select “Get”.
- In the pop up box choose “Create Apple ID”.
- Follow the set up process to add an email address (this will be the new Apple ID) and password and change the country using the drop down box to “Japan”.
- Click agree to terms and conditions and select Next.
- Select “None” under billing details and fill in name, address, phone number (A Google search can help with this) and head to the next page.
- Apple will send a verification code to the email address provided.
