There are two building's in Japan (formerly there was one in Montreal Canada) that you can find in two cities Fukuoka and Tokyo.

[Fukuoka Head Office]
1-5-1-10F Hakata Ekimae, Hakata-ku, Fukuoka 812-0011

I believe the Fukuoka HQ building has a sort of lobby area, they refer to as a reception area.

As you see in the photo above, there's two tables. The freestanding one on the left has a stamp, pretty popular business option to keep an ink stamp book to collect other businesses stamps.

Their hours open at 9am. There is no tours for individuals visiting, however they do have tours for up to 20 people on Tuesdays/Thursdays who are interested in becoming game developers.

Check this page for blackout dates and current availability for scheduling a tour. Again, not for visitors, only meant for those who have prospects of becoming game developers who apply 1 month in advanced.

Finding merch in Japan can be hit or miss. There are main game stores chains you may find dothack games, but with the current game's release you might only find the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions of .hack//G.U. Last Recode at the store GAMERS and TSUTAYA. There is only one store I know of that may contain other dothack merch not pertaining to videogames, though their stock may vary based on what merch they are selling on the CC2 Store currently.

Kotobukiya Akihabara Store

Okajima, 1 Chome-8-8 Sotokanda, Chiyoda City, Tokyo 101-0021, Japan

They are normally open between 12:00pm to 8pm

Inside you may find one shelf that is dedicated to CyberConnect2 merchandise. There are other locations for Kotobukiya in Japan, but the one in Akihabara Japan tends to be known for selling dothack stuff.

Many second hand stores exist in Japan, basically resellers selling all kinds of old merchandise of all kinds franchises. Often times you may find one selling an old dothack videogame or an old dothack light novel or manga. Anything and everything is on the table from posters, shirts, keychains, charms, books, games, soundtracks, anime DVD's, mousepads, postcards, gachapons, plushes, and so much more. But there's no way of telling till you walk into a store to know what's currently being sold because the inventory changes constantly.

But the best store I know of is Suruga-ya, this is chain in many locations throughout Japan. They even have a website where I've purchased some items in the past. But their website does not list everything in their store locations, so you may find even more if you put in the time to look around.

There are many to list with 124 locations, 72 that bear the Suruga-ya brand name and 52 partner stores as of January 2024. You can use this link to find them all.

Just look for the blue logo.
