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.
