And then there‘s this story
of that Norwegian guy whose main amazon account has been shut down for unknown reasons because it was directly related to another account which has been previously closed for policy abuse.
So, when I create a fresh amazon account and a fresh JP amazon account (with fake data) and link them, amazon might shut down both accounts AND might even close my third main account when I use my credit card in all three accounts.
But maybe I‘m just overcautious...
Yep! That'll be what happens and then you'll come back to complain that Amazon unfairly closed my accounts & stole books that you paid for.
Place the 'blame' for georestrictions where it lies - the publishers. It's not the book seller like Amazon or Kobo or Sony or anywhere else. It does not just apply to Japanese books either. It's worldwide.
