We had a chance to check the PARCO department store in Shibuya during our recent trip to Japan, especially 2 items of interest. The Nintendo Store and the new Pokemon Centre, pics inside.
First off the Nintendo Store is huge and filled with loads of Nintendo swag ranging from t shirts, magnets, plushies and loads more treasures. There are character statues everywhere you look and so much Nintendo Switch goodies! There’s a wall dedicated to all things Switch with all the Joy-Con colour combinations up on offer and the first party games that you didn’t know you needed.
It gets better though as right next to the Nintendo Store is the Pokemon Centre filled with Poke-goodies for you Pokemon Trainers! The Mewtwo in a water filled container that greets you is very impressive and life size.
There’s some really cool bling represented by a Swarovski x Pokemon collaboration and loads of cool phone covers, plushies, keyrings, games and memorabilia that has never been seen outside of Japan.
I’ve included a map below to the PARCO centre while the Nintendo Store and Pokemon Centre are both next to each other on the top on the 8th floor.
