If you've got an NTSC Super Nintendo Entertainment System then it's very easy to modify it to play both American and Japanese Super Famicom games. Open up the cartridge slot doors and look for the small rectangular cartridge tabs, all you need to do is remove them.
Ideally you should take your console apart using a Gamebit, some people use a soldering iron to melt the tabs away without taking the console to pieces -- you would need a very stead hand to do this and you could very easily damage your console so it's not recommended.
Once you've removed all the Gamebit screws, then remove the upper half of the case. Now you could cut away at the tabs with a strong sharp fine craft knife, you could melt it away with a soldering iron, you could drill them out or even saw them away using a junior hacksaw. Whatever method you use, tidy the job up by filing the rough edges away.

Wait, I thought it wasn't possible to do that with the newer SNES? The old one, I've done that twice. Just some needle nose pliers do the trick. But I think the newer SNES have metal there, though I can't speak from experience.
