Causes and solutions for not being able to return Amazon's English notation to Japanese

Although you have tried the above methods, there are times when you are still unable to return the page to Japanese because the page is still in English. In that case, here are some solutions you can try.

Cause 1: Check the URL of Amazon's Japanese site

The URL for Amazon's Japanese site is set to "amazon.co.jp" and the American site is set to "amazon.com. If the site is set to a country other than Japan, there may be no Japanese in the language settings. First, check the site address in your browser and change the exact URL.

Cause 2: Clear the cache.

Cache is a method of temporarily storing the content and information of a web page on your PC once you have used it, so that the next time you open the page, the page will load more quickly than before.

You often hear that clearing the cache makes your PC run faster.

On Amazon, if you have too much cache, then a language change might not show up on your screen instantly.

So, clear your cache once and visit Amazon again.

In some cases, due to a glitch of Amazon, the description is changed to English and it is impossible to change it back.

In such cases, it is better to leave the browser temporarily and try to access Amazon again after a while.
