if you live in China and can change your country settings using your address in China, yes by migrating your account to that site, but you need to be aware that once you migrate your account there, it becomes impossible to migrate it back and I understand they have very few books in English (according to people who've accidentally registered there)

Yes as long as you live there and have a credit card based in that country.

Would this be the same for Japan? Thinking about getting a Kindle for a family member visiting from Japan

yes, they can register it to (or maybe it's - anyway, when you buy it, buy it as a gift and then it won't be registered to your account and they can register it to theirs

on the otherhand, if you're thinking about a Paperwhite, the ones in Japan have more storage on them
