The long-awaited Pokemon Cafe Osaka is here!
The long wait is over! Pokemon Center Osaka DX and Pokemon Cafe Osaka have opened their doors on 9/20/2019.
At this new Pokemon Cafe in Osaka, you can enjoy various Pokemon-themed dishes, similar to the one in Tokyo. Every now and then, they’ll have seasonal menus available. While some of these dishes are staples, you might want to check their official site for the most recent menus.
Ready to go? You’ll need to make a reservation before you head in, so head over to their online RSVP site to do so. If you just want to buy Pokemon goodies there, no RSVP is required.
