Languages as subfolder URL patterns in primary domain

Hi. 

 

Among the many suboptimal design decisions in Shopify world (chiefly, multiple languages of products cannot be in the same place and need idiotic "apps" to work...what a basic miss)  is one about primary domains and languages. 

 

We do NOT want the ourbrand.myshopify.com url. 
We have a "primary domain" which is shop.ourbrand.com

 

And for our languages, we need to use this primary domain.  Otherwise what's the point. 

 

- shop.bunzaburo.com            (main language, Japanese)
- shop.bunzaburo.com/en/    (second language, English)

 

This seems impossible, because to be able to have a language's' subfolder, we have to pick the second option in the `Markets --> Domains and Languages` screen. Which forces the *.myshopify.com URL for our store.

This is so stupid. What am I missing? How can we keep our set domain (primary domain) and have languages as subfolders?
