Featured Destination on our Anime Japan Tours vacation series.

Pika Pika! Pokemon fans reunite! The Pokemon Center is the perfect place for Pokemon fans to reminisce their childhood with Pikachu. Whether your favorite Pokemon character was Jigglypuff, Bulbasaur or Eevee, come here to catch them all!

The Pokemon Center is a Pokemon fan’s dream, carrying special Pokemon goods that can only be found at the 14 locations throughout Japan: Sapporo, Sendai, Tokyo (Nihonbashi, Ikebukuro, Skytree, Shibuya), Chiba (Tokyo Bay), Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka (Umeda, Shinsaibashi), Hiroshima and Fukuoka. There's also the Pokemon Store found at Tokyo Character Street.

Meet the Pokemon Mascots

Meet the Pokemon Mascots

In addition to exclusive Pokemon goods and collectibles, each store also has features their own mascot to greet guests. For example, the Mega Tokyo branch has an Alola-inspired Charizard and Pikachu waiting for you (image to the right), while the Shibuya store's mascots are Mew and Mewtwo (fun fact: Shibuya is the first Pokemon Center to not have Pikachu as a mascot). There are also exclusive goods for each store, like Shibuya's Graffiti Pikachu or Tokyo Character Street's Train Station Master Pikachu.

At the Nihonbashi location is also the first official permanent Pokemon Café. The café features Pokemon-themed foods and drinks where fans can enjoy a tasty meal while also enjoying the aesthetics. Some items on the menu changes seasonally, but some popular dishes that have been offered include Pikachu-themed curry, Snorlax-themed loco moco, Eevee-themed pancakes, Jigglypuff-themed cheesecake, and many more. Even a simple cup of coffee comes with a cookie shaped like Pikachu’s tail! Note that the Pokemon Café is by reservation only so be sure to make an online reservation before your visit.

Catch em All!

No matter which Pokemon Center you visit, the walls are always lined with anything and everything Pokemon. Whether it's a towel to wipe off the sweat while playing Pokemon Go or just another Pikachu plush, the Pokemon Center is a dream come true for any die hard Pokemon trainer. Pokemon fans wishing to trading and battling their Pokemon have also come to the right place. Most Pokemon Centers in Japan have dedicated rooms where fans can release their inner Pokemon Trainer spirit and trade Pokemon with other fans. Let’s go catch ‘em all!
