New Pokemon Center to open in Kyoto with exclusive goods

Post by Sour Puss on Thu Jan 28, 2016 10:53 am

In Kyoto, Pikachu wears a kimono with a Ho-Oh design and a Vivillion-adorned hair accessory.
Kyoto will finally get its very own Pokemon Center, set to open on March 16 on the fifth floor of the city’s Takashimaya department store. The new shop will sell over 2,500 different kinds of Pokemon goods, with a number of items featuring the new logo for the Kyoto branch, which sees Pikachu riding on the back of the colorfully-winged Ho-Oh.
The logo will be displayed prominently in the middle of the store, and is designed to appear as if Pikachu and Ho-Oh have flown in to Kyoto from the world of Pokemon.
The shop, which covers an area of 206.2 square meters, will stock all types of Pokemon merchandise, from plush toys to clothing, accessories and stationery.
There’ll also be a large number of original goods combining the world of Pokemon with Kyoto-themed elements, making them ideal souvenirs for tourists both from within Japan and abroad.

There are currently nine Pokemon Centers around Japan, with locations in Fukuoka, Osaka, Hiroshima, Nagoya, Yokohama, Sendai, Sapporo, Chiba, and Ikebukuro in Tokyo. Each store has their own range of original goods, and for the opening in Kyoto, customers can expect to see a very special type of Pikachu, designed to embody the culture and feel of the historic locale.
More details regarding the opening event and the upcoming line of original Maiko Pikachu goods will be released closer to the March opening date. With this being one of the most adorable mascots they’ve ever released, we hope store staff will limit the number of items per customer to avoid the crazy mass-buying chaos we saw at the 2014 opening of the Tokyo store.
