    I was wondering would this be safe so I can browse the Japanese Wii Shop Channel off my US 3.2 Wii and won't replace the US one has anyone tried this out yet if so please tell me I'm very curious and plus I don't want to change the region of my Wii.

    That's the internet channel, not the shop channel.

    You can probably install this on your Wii, but it won't work - unless you use freethewads or something, but you'd be better off just running the US internet channel.

    Thanks anyway now that I know that's the Internet Browser I wish that they had the Wii Shop Channel WAD in Japanese that would be cool because I can use that to get Japanese VC Games on my Wii Like Famicom Zelda 1 & 2 Super Mario Bros USA & Super Mario Bros. 3

    You can install them easily. Just search for "The Legend of Zelda NES", "Zelda II: Link's Adventure", "Super Mario Bros. 2" and "Super Mario Bros.3" USA.

    Well you can change the region to jap, install the jap shop channel and then revert to usa and run StarFall. This should allow you to have region free channels so you will be able to run the jap shop channel.

    Are there not WADs of Japanese VC games?

    Hm

    Well you could inject the ROMs, and install them, or you could do what gamidi said (which seems a bit excessive just for some old NES games...)
