Hello there,

Steam now supports Japanese currency (Yen), this is the link:
http://store.steampowered.com/yen

It supports Konbini as one of the payment methods too:

1. During checkout, select Konbini as your payment method and confirm that you live in Japan.
2. After reviewing your purchase, click "Continue to Degica".
3. Complete the purchase form with the correct details of your transaction.
4. Your Konbini details will be displayed on-screen and emailed to you. Your purchase will now be pending while we wait for your funds to be transferred.
5. Go to your selected convenience store and pay for your purchase.
6. Once we receive confirmation from Degica that the transaction has been completed, we will send you an email telling you your purchase is complete.

Sorry to comment on an older thread, but I just moved to Japan, and was wondering if anyone has tried to purchase games with a credit card from here on their Japanese form? It kept giving me errors and wouldn't take my information, so I had to give up and pay at the konbini.

If you moved to japan, then steam will reject the payment because your payment method doesn't match the region it's being used in.

If ou're using a payment method from you original country, you can ask steam to enable your account to use the ?cc=XX model to buy games from your 'home' country. Otehrwise you can try to use Kombini to fill it instead. Steam might allow you ot use the Japan store, but you'd have tprove you live here. NOte that Japan has a bizaro land craziness that delays games there by several months. You might be better off using your original payment country if possible (depending where that is)

Thanks for the help!

I'll look into seeing if I can get the account switched to buy it from my 'home country' with another method.

Hadn't heard of the delays, so definitely think I'll stick to konbini for now, even though I live in the countryside pretty far away from the approved ones. Thanks again!

U can follow as what the guy above told, and if u cannot speak Japanese yet, u can like just show the cashier the email steam sent to ur email.

This is a very late reply. But for those still asking. I just bought using Kombini in the payment method. Your email will have a link on how to use the loppi machine (I used Mini Stop) with photo. It will print out receipt and you bring that receipt to the cashier.

By the time you get back to your pc. You should have received confirmation email from steam

That depends on what you select.
