Newly opened Pokémon Center in Kyoto

Pokémon Center Kyoto

pokemon center kyoto
The must-see quality of this Pokémon Center is the interior with strong imagery of the legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh and Lugia. Inside of the store, such as the walls, are black instead of white like most other Pokémon Centers. The ambiance of traditional city of Kyoto is reflected in the store, you may feel more of Japanese essence in Pokémon Center in Kyoto than any other locations.
