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)
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.
