In fact, you can buy an unlocked phone online from Apple Japan here for about 75,000 yen. Apple Japan does not widely advertize this but then you face the problem of no payngo SIMs and very few MNVOs (two perhaps) none of whom offer payngo. The MNVO SIM has to be purchased for a minimum 1-year contract using monthly credit card payments from a Japanese cc. It is a locked-up market waiting for some serious disruption IMO.
