How Do I Turn the Camera Shutter Sound Off on A Japanese iPhone?

In case you just bought a Japanese iPhone, you probably already realized that it makes an audible shutter sound whenever you are taken a picture. 

Most people tend to turn off the camera shutter sound as soon as they are trying it for the first time since it is kind of annoying. However, according to Japanese law, you can't do this. The reality is that all smartphones that are sold in Japan need to have the camera shutter sound on by default and it can't be turned off. Why? The goal is to prevent people from taking photos from others without their permission. Thus, if you get a photo taken secretly, the camera makes a sound so you can notice it.

However, it is possible to turn the iPhone 11 Japan shutter sound off.
