You cant change it, and also, you cannot transfer data between a Japanese 3DS and a English 3DS. Gamestop CANNOT do that either. Plus, data saved on the SD Card of the Japanese 3DS also cannot be transferred to ANY 3DS what so ever, besides the music and pictures you put on it yourself.
If you're willing, and have the tools and know-how, you could probably just swap the motherboards of a Japanese 3DS with that of any other region's. I can't swear it'll work, but I did the very same with my old DSi. Like the 3DS, it's region locked too. It works just fine. Plus, you get to keep any previously installed software and whatnot.
