can't buy in. As in the games aren't available in Japan via Steam. Original title gave the impression that they were locked to only be available in Japan.

just to clarify for my smoothbrain, are japanese publishers locking the japanese market out of their games?

Second sentence of the article.

Japanese game publishers making Steam releases unavailable for their countrymen has been a thing for years, but Steam’s recent popularity boom in Japan may be nudging things in the right direction.
