I'm also using japanese g3, but at least i can read a bit, helps. Not really sure why they do it, but japanese version is much cheaper.

I hacked my Japanese G3 and was able to enable the English menus. I haven't checked but I believe the GX1 should also be hackable.

I didn't have any trouble with it after it had been hacked, although you are going to void the warrantly (unless it can be hacked back to the original state).
