Visit the Official POKEMON CENTER! Heal your inner child back to full heath

Visiting Japan has been one of the most eye opening and exciting trips I have taken. I’ve visited Italy, London, and NOLA on the blog but I haven’t touched on Asia. Japan is my first Asian country to make it on the blog and everything from the food to the neat things to do are worth writing about. I wanted to visit the official Pokemon Center the most. I shopped at both the Pokemon Center in Osaka, and the Pokemon Center MEGA store in Tokyo.

Visiting the real life Pokemon Center (Osaka, Japan)

This travel post is dedicated to my nerd followers who loved Pokemon as a kid. Us nerds that haven’t lost their dream to become a Pokemon Master. If you can’t visit both stores, don’t sweat it. The Pokemon MEGA Center doesn’t have all that much different than the Osaka location.

The Pokemon Center in Japan is more than just a place to buy Pokemon merchandise. It takes up almost a whole floor of a shopping center. It has a seating area to watch Gameboy Pokemon tournament battles, individual consoles to battle Pokemon Stadium style, and an area for kids to trade!

Jay and I got an early start and hopped on the JR line toward the Osaka station. The Japan Rail Pass really helped us save money and time commuting around Japan. It only took us about 20 minutes to take the train there from our station in Namba. The Osaka Pokemon Center is easy to find because it is literally in the JR Osaka line station.

    1. Right? It makes me so happy that kids still do all of the Pokemon related things I did as a kid. Mu childhood lives on!

  1. This looks so fun! I was such a huge Pokémon fan as a kid and when Pokémon go came out it resparked the interest so I would totally love this!

    1. I still play Pokemon Go and occasionally watch an episode or so on Netflix when I am bored. I never did find out what happened to Ash and Misty. I’m just happy Pokemon still lives on in the younger generation. I was kind of dissappointed with how little studio ghibli and other animes I had watched as a kid were not available in the stores.
