Geek It! Otaku Out and About: Pokemon Centre in Japan

If you’re hoping to travel to Japan, one of the things that you must do is visit a Pokemon Centre.

Pokemon Centres are situated in the main cities so if you ever do see one, always stop by just in case you miss the store in the midst of all the Japan craziness.

To step inside a Pokemon Centre is a dream come true for many otaku fans.

Any otaku would have played Pokemon at one point of their lives. And while it isn’t the same Pokemon Centre that you’d think it is, the real life Pokemon Centre is quite exceptional.


We’re talking about Pokemon plushies galore. From Charmander to Mew and Ditto to Lapras, you will be able to purchase your favourite plushies to your heart’s content.



And if you’re a fan of Pikachu, there are usually special limited editions of Pikachu that you can purchase such as Train Conductor Pikachu, Pikachu in a Kimono, DJ Pikachu, and Pikachu with Charizard coat. 


But it’s not just plushies. You can get every type of Pokemon merchandise. Stickers, plates, mugs, chocolate, chargers, shirts, pens … it’s basically heaven for every kid, teen, and adult — get ready to say goodbye to your money!


Depending on the Pokemon Centre, you can also watch live performances, play some games, and take photos at various backdrops.




Pokemon plays a huge part in Japanese pop-culture for obvious reasons. If you’re planning your first Japan trip, we highly recommend you to visit a Pokemon Centre to achieve your geeky dreams.
