Lunch at the Pokemon Cafe in Tokyo

Tokyo is well-known for its eclectic eateries and cafés. We make an effort to try a new one each time we go into the city. It’s one of the reasons we’ve loved traveling around Japan. Just like the animal cafés and the themed restaurants, like the Kawaii Monster Café, we could just not wait to visit the  Pokemon Café right next to the Pokemon Center.

As it turns out, we were lucky and all we had to do was wait for 45 minutes, perfect time to go Pokemon shopping across the hall.
