I suspect not. Unlike the other national Amazon stores, which are all linked with Amazon US, Amazon JP operates as a completely independent company. But that's pure speculation on my part, of course - best thing to do is ask Kindle CS.

I got an email from Amazon US. You are right, each Amazon operates independently. I also inquired about international warranty, Amazon US wants me to ask Amazon JP. Funny, my friend told me the paper in Japanese version listed Amazon US as one of warranty fulfillment locations. (He threw away the paper, so I can't get a scan from him.) Anyway, I asked my friend to give me his after he uses it for a while, because electronic toys usually break within first few months of use. I am curious: if I needed a replacement, will I get a Japan or US version?

The flyer I got from Joshin only lists Amazon Japan. I'll attach it here.

Thank you. According to the paper, Amazon Japan is responsible for warranty. My friend must misunderstand it.

Hello

I tried to register on amazon.jp but it asks an Japan address. How can I use an international address?
Does anyone knows an redirect service on Japan? I´m from Brazil and would like to buy an Kindle PW wifi only because in my country it costs US$243,00

Best regards

Frodex

Hello

I just found out how to have an japanese address. Sorry for the newbie question above.
Does anyone here already used the jshoppers service?

Regards

What retailers in Tokyo have the Paperwhite? Going there soon and I thought I'd take the opportunity to pick one up.

People have had success at the electronics stores like Joshin and Bic Camera. Just don't expect them at Yamada Denki, Edion, or Yodobashi Camera since they're having a pissing contest with Amazon and refuse to stock Kindles (next up: slappy fight!).
