I will be visiting Japan next month and will be meeting up with a long-time online friend in Osaka.
We have never met in person, but have been social media penpals for years and years. I would like to bring a gift, but gifts are not my strong suit and I know it is important in Japanese culture. He has a wife and two young children. His son fantasizes about tech toys but I don't want to be weird and ask what to choose as Christmas is after one month should I send him this https://www.geekwrapped.com/science-toys-for-kids
to ask his children opinion? I also want to bring something for his wife and him.
I will be going to Osaka about 16 days into my trip, so super perishable foods are not ideal.
