Pokemon Center Osaka : Japan 2016

One of the places I was looking forward to visit in Osaka (second to Wizarding World of Harry Potter) is the Pokemon Center Osaka.

The center is located in the 13th floor of Daimaru Department Store in Umeda. If you get lost, don’t be afraid to ask questions and if they can’t understand you just reenact Pikachu and say “pika pika”. – they’ll know.. (based on my experience HAHA)

The New Umeda in the nineteenth-tallest building and one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. It consists of two 40-story towers that connect at their two uppermost stories, with bridges and an escalator crossing the wide atrium-like space in the center.

The donut shape roof of the building provides a 360-degree view and lets you roam around while being dragged by the strong wind.
