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?

    I live on a US military base right now - moving soon though - and a lot of my friends have had trouble with this very thing...their relatives send them US Starbucks gift cards and they don't work at all in Japanese Starbucks locations. I know this wasn't much help in answering your original question about using your US PayPal account to pay for Starbucks here...the only way I could think of it being feasible would be to have a debit card issued on your US PayPal account and get a friend or family member to send you that card, so that it draws from your US PayPal balance.

    @genkidesu this gave me the idea to buy my friend something online in exchange for her getting me a latte!

    Here is what I do, I have an American PP and a Japanese PP. I transfer the money from the American PP to the Japanese PP and then deposit the money into my Japanese bank account.

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!

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

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.
