Our 5 day trip in Tokyo, morning of Feb. 19, 2009- Pokemon Center, Tokyo

My son wanted to see the Pokemon Center in Tokyo , one of his requests for his 8th birthday gift. He is really a fan of pokemon even my daughter likes it. And so our first trip of that day was the Pokemon Center. We arrived there early, around 11am and we're lucky the store was not that crowded yet.

Across Pokemon Center on its other entrance (left side) is the Pokemon Union Room where you can play the video game on the big screen. No one was playing that time we didn't have any idea on how to play the game since the attendants can not speak English. So my son ended up playing the pokeball or the pokechip game which is now his favorite video game. He collects pokechips (aside from collecting pokemon cards) just to play that game, it's ¥ 100 for each pokechip. I wonder how he plays the game in Japanese ??? hahaha. Oh well kids are kids they have ways to understand the games.

Please leave a comment if you want to get the directions there, thanks.

Thanks for 'taking' us inside the Pokemon Center! I didn't know it exists until you posted it! I love learning, especially it's from other people and with pictures! :)

Urgh, so much Pikachu stuff! I want the stuffed toys! And I remember being addicted to Pokemon Cards when I was in High School! Good old days.

I just didn't get Pokemon. What was it about those characters that endeared them to many? But I don't hate them :D

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Happy weekend and come back tomorrow!
