If you're connected to the Japan AppStore you can only find apps that have been "selected" for distribution here, you can't expect to download any app from another region... apparently the "developer" has to specifically request distribution to Japan.

I download my Apple apps from the American app store. You just make an account which is easy. When I need an app from the Japan app store I just sign in with that account. All very easy.

Google Plays apps are downloaded from the store of the country too. People use a VPN and new accounts in other countries to download Japanese Google Play apps.

That's the same in every region. Apple allows developers to choose the regions in which their apps will be available for download. This is the choice of the developer. Apps aren't "selected for distribution", they're just like any other product, it's only sold where the person selling it wants to sell it.

I believe you need a credit card in the country of the account to be able to open an account in that country.

To use the American app store you need an address. Any address. And change the region on your device.
