You need a VPN service (either paid or free) that provide redirecting the traffic back to your country. It can be Windows software or Chrome extensions.

Opera browser (based on Chrome) has built-in VPN. But the country choice is limited.

But do you really care about those ads?

Chrome shows commercials now?

Are you talking about using Chrome to browse YouTube videos?

Try clearing your cookies, and then accessing YouTube. It may have set some cookies to record your country's IP address range or something.

Other than that, I don't know.

Did you change the OS's language settings? Did you buy this PC in Japan?
