Someone up in the thread said Japanese market camera bodies only have Japanese language menus. He told me they do sell some bodies with 'export' software too - might be worth asking if you are there and interested anyway.

Panasonic and Sony seem to be the only ones to sell Japanese only cameras in Japan, the multi language versions cost more. Every other camera can be changed to language of choice, within reason, even if it starts up in Japanese.

Yes, I was specifically interested in the G7 (and they had the 'export' model at that time) but I decided against - I was not entirely sure of the price in the UK or what the bank would end up taking for the privilege of using their card abroad! (Not much as it turned out)
