Pokémon Center Tokyo DX & Pokémon Cafe Opened in Nihonbashi Takashimaya in March 2018!


March 14, 2018 marked the inauguration of a new Pokémon Center in Tokyo. The official Pokémon shop opened in the Takashimaya department store in Nihonbashi and it's the first of its kind to also feature a cafe. It's also the biggest in the history of Pokémon Centers boasting a size of about 1,300 square meters.

Experience the World of Pokémon with a Meal at the Pokémon Cafe

Pokémon Center Tokyo DX and the Pokémon Café are both located on the 5th floor of Nihonbashi Takashimaya S.C. East Building. The district of Nihonbashi is a very fitting location too since the first Pokémon Center in history opened here back in 1997.
