Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

Starbucks in Japan where you can get a seat, easily

I've probably mentioned this a lot before, here and there, but in the case of the Starbucks that I see going about me daily business in Japan, almost all of them tend to be packed. Not that I'm massive fan but I prefer Starbucks to some of the other coffee chains in Japan like a Dotour or Veloce. To this end I thought if anyone out there knows of, or from now spots, a Starbucks where you're almost guaranteed to get a seat, maybe we could drop them here and, well, have some sort of list that we can all refer to.

High quality Japanese restaurants in Tokyo

Looking for a classy Japanese restaurant that does set courses. The options seem so overwhelming and I usually don't go out for expensive Japanese food that I though I'd try and get some direct recommendations. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Daikanyama (south, southwest Tokyo station areas preferred). It's a bit of an occasion requiring of something traditional and sedate. Budget around 6000 yen a head. Cheers.

US paypal and starbucks coffee

What I'm wanting to do is purchase starbucks here in Japan with my paypal in the states. I have money in my paypal account, but Ive only ever used it for ebay purchases. I was thinking maybe being able to buy a giftcard online, but I don't know where to look to be able to have the giftcard work in Japan. U.S. giftcards don't work here right? Any suggestions?

Greek coffee (maybe turkish)

Does anyone know where I can find greek coffee in the kanto area? Turkish coffee is also the same thing i think. I've found Turkish once, but I stumbled on it and can't recall where in Tokyo I had it.

Where do you get good Vegetarian Food in Tokyo?

I am looking for hotels or restaurants that serve good Vegetarian Food i.e. food without meat, seafood or fish. I do not mind eating cheese or other dairy products. BTW, by good vegetarian food, I mean cooked food items and not just salad. I know Indian Restaurants do have vegetarian options, but I am looking for other cuisines.

Solo dinner choices in Japan

I wanted to ask everyone what your 'go to' place is for eating dinner on your own in Japan. Recently, I've gotten into the habit of just going to a McDonalds when it comes to eating on my own. This is not out of fear of new experiences, foods, language, or being on my own. It's just a lazy habit I seem to have fallen into. I'm looking for some new ideas, besides cooking at home.

Easter eggs in Japan

Does anyone know where I might be able to buy chocolate easter eggs in Tokyo? I'm thinking Cadbury cream eggs, mini eggs, stuff like that. I've been in Japan a while and never been bothered by it but I've got some young nephews visiting around that time so I'd like to try and get them something for easter.

Japanese baby formula

What baby formula have you tried, like or recommend? I breastfed my daughter but always had some formula for emergencies etc. She reacted pretty badly to the beanstalk one the daycare gave her. But I found icureo was really gentle and apparently is the closest match to breastmilk in breakdown. She had no reactions with it all. I now use the icureo follow on milk too.
