Cute Japanese anime character is the star of a cafe in Tokyo’s trendy Roppongi Hills.
Last week, a blogger named Sharla visited the Pokemon exhibition that’s currently going on in one of Tokyo’s trendiest streets, Roppongi Hills.
The exhibition is in conjunction with the release of the anime film Pokemon The Movie: Diancie And The Cocoon Of Destruction, which opened July 19 in Japan. The “Pokemon The Movie XY Shop” exhibition was launched on the same day, and will run until the end of this month.
Apart from the many Pokemon-related merchandise and limited edition goodies available at the exhibition, there is also a Pikachu Cafe, where visitors can dig in to super cute Pikachu-themed meals.
Clockwise from top left: Pikachu Teriyaki Burger, Ketchup Rice Poke Ball, Pikachu Karepan (curry bun), Kids Meal, Pikachu Thunderbolt Parfait and Pikachu Rice Ball with Curry. (Food pictures from RoppongiHills.com)
Along with two of her friends, Sharla, a Canadian studying in a university in Tokyo, sampled some of these dishes and captured their eating adventures on video. Check out Sharla’s vlog (video blog) on the Pikachu Cafe below. You can also subscribe to her YouTube vlog channel, or visit her Sharla In Japan blog, where she regularly writes (and vlogs) about Japanese culture and living in Tokyo.
