Yes but you have to sign in to your US account. The Vita is region free but games are locked to the account which purchased them.

PS Vita doesn't have a region, what determines the games you play is the PSN account you log into.

So you can play US games by logging out of your JPN account and Logging into your US account. You will be able to play US games, but not your JPN games until you log back in with your JPN account. I recommend having 2 memory cards, 1 for US and 1 for JPN since you can only have 1 region's games on a memory card at a time.

Also Physical games don't require a specific region for your PSN account. So you can play physical JPN Vita games on a US PSN account and earn trophies as well.
