I think it would be cool if there was a full list of everything available on the Japanese Shop Channel, if it were possible. I know you all do updates when they get new games, just thought maybe you could make a complete list.

My god, think of how long that would take...sadly I know of no great resource for this information. You can get information on Wikipedia, but I wouldn't trust it to be complete for obvious reasons.

You could always trudge through the Nintendo.co.jp Wiiware and VC pages. That's what I do!

Of course the challenge there is that all the VC games are only indicated by the title screen. If the game happened to be titled in romaji, then you'll be able to tell what it is (or if it uses a recognisable graphic); otherwise you're scuppered!

If you've got anything specific you're wanting to know about I'm happy to help with the heavy lifting!

Naw, nothing in particular. I was just thinking it might help out the owners of Japanese Wii's. But I guess since the people with a Japanese Wii actually have the shop at their disposal they don't need another list lol. I'm thinking about importing.

The website is your friend, though most of the text is rendered in such a way that normal translators like Google Translate won't be much help unless you can locate the title in the description and cut and paste it which will help you identify the game.

In a way it's kind of fun. If there's a title you know then google to find out the Japanese name and see if you can locate an image of the title screen -- both will help you find the game you're looking for, though having Japanese fonts and a virtual keyboard on your computer will also be great assets.
