Lovers of Pokemon can be quite disappointed with shop with no history or explanation of Pokemon. All products are in Japanese so for non-locals it is quite a handicap to understand the products.

I visited in November 2012. I lived in Tokyo so I had time to visit here, but if you are on a quick holiday then don't waste your time. It is a small shop full of Pokemon goods - which are aimed at the domestic market. There are Japanese goods like chopsticks that aren't really used in foreign countries. Also... More

If are into the anime scene and like Pokemon you cannot leave Tokyo with visiting this store! It's got everything Pokemon you can imagine, from stuffed animals to keychains and school supplies. It's really fun to just walk around this big shop and check everything out. And I am sure you gonna end up leaving with a little something and... More

We visited the Tokyo Bay store first with the impression it would be a fairly small store so we were going to save most of our money for the "bigger" store near Hammumatsucho. We were very wrong. The Tokyo Bay store had far more things to browse and was busier. It had more cards, plushies and...everything really. Realistically it is... More

The Pokemon Center is in reality just a store. We had just visited the store in Osaka Station and that store seemed to have more products and was in a larger space. The Osaka Station Center also had more interactive activities for the children, thus more kids that were in the store were having a good time doing other than... More

A good variety of pokemon memorabilia, however much of the collectables are quite expensive and mostly the new pokemon. Worth a look, however nothing too special. Kids would probably appreciate it far more. I'm just more of the original 150 pokemon sort of guy.

Very close to the station (just across the street). A bit small but has a lot of interesting stuff! The center is located on 2nd floor (right above 7-11). While you are in this area, there's a lovely garden (¥150/person).

I went there one day on the way to Zozoji temple and Tokyo tower. It was pretty easy to find from Hamamatsucho station, just across the street and up an escalator. The inside is filled with tons of Pokemon merchandise of course, but a lot of it is stuff that I've seen in other places around the city. It would... More

Want Pokemon chopsticks, stickers, bandaids, slippers, plushies, figures, cards, hair ties, lollies, key rings? It's got everything. I would disagree with the opinion that there is nothing here that can't be found in a large toy store. You'd be pretty damn lucky like to find the majority of these things in Australia let alone for less than $30 a pop... More

This is a store. There is nothing here that can't be found in a large toy store. If you are a real fan, perhaps the fact that there are so many in one place would be appealing. But they could have done a lot to make it more of an experience, more opportunities for photographs or something. The Disney stores,... More
