    I'm spending a week in Tokyo and another in Osaka. If anybody has suggestions on places to check out in either city for PAD related swag or otherwise, please let me know! :D

    Akihabara. Not sure if there will be a pop up store while you're there but some reported they've found PAD merchandise scattered around Akihabara. Just gotta be on the lookout and search around.

    Check out some temples.
    If you want to be creeped out, check out the Yasakuni Shrine and accompanying war museum.
    Try to run into a Terrace House filming.
    Be ready for crazy heat in Tokyo. Or maybe it won't be bad in June.
    I hope you like fish.
    Seriously, though, get a guide book, or at least check out the top recommendations on Trip Advisor.

    EDIT: Oh, sorry, I don't know anything about PAD stuff there, but they have like official stores for merch I think, shouldn't be hard to find.

    @MisterDrgn No worries, other recommendations are appreciated as well! This'll be my second time going. First time was six years ago, and that time definitely I definitely used trip advisor to help plan my whole stay.

    Cool, have a good time. I visited Tokyo for a few days in mid-Summer (before a conference in Sapporo), and it was miserably hot, but it must be better in June. I think that was shortly before I got in PAD, sadly.
