Anyone know if this can be shipped to the US?

From everything I was able to find just going through the shipping process: no. There are some services that allow you to have something shipped to them and then they ship it to you (for a fee) from Japan. The big issue would be, from what I can read, that you need a JP Credit Card or another form of accepted JP Electronic transaction funding. My Japanese is a bit rusty, so I might have missed something, but that's what I was able to discern from going through the ordering process.

I would recommend a proxy service... I just submitted the link to 2 different ones to see who has the cheaper service to send it here to the U.S lol

Is the Walkman coming to the USA?

What proxy did you go through to order it?

 

How can I order it? Is it in Japanese ?

You need a Japanese Sony account, Japanese form of transactional currency, and a Japanese address. You do get a 10% new member discount if you can somehow fulfill those requirements, though!

As others have mentioned, proxy service is probably the cleanest way if you're not in Nippon. Otherwise you can try retailers like "nin-nin-game" who have both the Walkman and headphones up for sale (take their terrible reviews with a grain of salt, I got my JP KH3 PS4 Pro from them fwiw).

Yeah i was so pissed off the JP Sony Store didnt take foreign credit cards... I have a forwarding address and even set up an account but the payment part really is a pain since theres no way for foreigners to get around that at all, even legitimately. I'd pay for a gift card and buy it that way if I could tbh but that doesn't seem to be an option either...

Proxies will definitely not get you that discount. While I understand the whole fraud issue with fake foreign cards, they should offer ways that allow safe passage of foreign cards like a Paypal or something, though I don't think Paypal is widely used at all in Japan.

In terms of nin-nin-game, I can vouch for that and say I've purchased the JP Bravely Second CE from them and it came in great condition and in a timely manner.
