The Pokemon cafe in Tokyo is officially a hit. The establishment has seen an incredible number of people come through in less than a year.
According to Mantan Web, the first permanent Pokemon Cafe at The Pokemon Center Tokyo DX saw over 100,000 visitors from the time the center first opened on March 14th. The small 140 seat cafe is blowing the competition away in the short time its been open. The site also reports that the average reservations at the cafe consistently hit 95%, and that the number of visitors apparently hit the coveted milestone on September 24th.
Grab the tourists by the balls!
The cafe offers a variety of items, including a series of special Halloween-themed items like a parfait in the shape of Tangela or a burger made to look like Gastly, complete with a black bun. Those special items will be off the menu come October 31st, but the cafe will continue to serve items like an Eevee burger, a Pikachu curry, and a Pikachu carbonara!
While some of these items might seem too beautiful to eat, we can tell you that half our staff are packing their bags to get a glimpse of these Japanese treats in person! They’re just too gorgeous!
