One of the largest Pokemon retail centers will open in Takashimaya Co.’s new department store in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi district on March 14.

The Pokemon Center Tokyo DX shop, which handles merchandise of the anime, and a connected Pokemon Cafe will be located on the fifth floor of the East Building of the Nihonbashi Takashimaya S.C. outlet.

The center will have a total floor space of about 1,300 square meters.

According to operator Pokemon Co., Pokemon cafes have operated for a limited time. But the Tokyo cafe will be the first permanent one.

Takashimaya officials said they hope the Pokemon shop and cafe will attract young couples with children and families of three generations.
