Where to get Bintang beer in Tokyo?

Does anyone know where you can buy Bintang beer (from Indonesia) in Tokyo? I've tried a Kaldi and they didn't have any, and also one or two expensive supermarkets to no success. Looking for shops, as opposed to restaurants. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I don't know any shops, but I'll keep an ear out... but on October 15th and 16th there is an Indonesian festival in Shibuya ward. You could email them and see if they will have it or better still if they know where you can buy it! Their public address is indonesiafestival2008@gmail.com Also, you might be able to pick up some at one of the Oktoberfests. I know they are heavy on the German and European beer, but the good ones have some world beers too. There's one in Odaiba September 30th to October 10th.

    @Saitama Good to know, thanks. I like those festivals down by that stage near Yoyogi Park. If they don't have Bintang I'll be surprised. I've still got a few shop options that I haven't tried yet, so I'm not giving up hope.

    Did you try Rakuten? They usually have everything.

    Found em! Picked up a couple of bottles from a Kaldi in shopping mall Ario in Kameari (Tokyo). About 270 per bottle!

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.
