This new Pokemon cafe, located in Nihonbashi, Is the FIRST permanent Pokemon cafe in Tokyo and was opened in March 14th 2019. The menu is full of super tasty food and there is something for everyone (they even have a veggie burger on offer which is quite rare in Tokyo)! All the food is decorated very cute, it’s almost too cute to eat! Everything about the cafe is pokemon themed, from the food to the decor and even the staff! (If you’re lucky chef Pikachu will come out to say hi!)
