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.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D
