Yokohama is basically my hometown because it's where I lived for 5 months the first time I studied abroad! It's south of Tokyo and is the second most populated city in Japan (second to Tokyo). I studied there in 2013 and was lucky to have been living near all the hotspots! From where I lived, I was able to walk to MinatoMirai, Sakuragichou, Kannai (red light district), Chinatown (1 of biggest in the world outside of China!) and Motomachi. I often frequented the Pokemon Center at the Landmark Tower Mall and bought way too many things there...

In 2014, there was a viral video going on my Facebook newsfeed. A bunch of Pikachu popped out of an elevator and starting dancing in unison in the video. As I watched it, memories flashed back as I saw the Pikachu dancing basically in my hood. They were all so kawaii! But of course the entire time I was thinking,,, why 2014? Why didn't this happen when I was in Japan in 2013?! I totally missed out on selfiie-ing with all the cute Pikachu!

Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBQKmTPl3pY



Luckily, it's happening again this year while I'm still in Japan! I am sooo excited to dance and watch all the Pikachu!

Here are some event deets you gotta know:

  • This event is FREE!
  • Location: MinatoMirai area
    • Arrive at Minato Mirai Station or Sakuragicho Station
      • I would use Sakuragicho station because I'm quite used to this area but you'd have to cross the bridge.
      • If you arrive at Minato Mirai Station at least you won't have to cross any bridges because you're already in the area!
    • Look for the huge Landmark Tower. It's basically around this area! It's hard to miss because it's a tall building. There's also a giant ferris wheel that always displays the time near!
  • There will be over 1000 Pikachu dancing. YES. OVER ONE THOUSAND!
  • If you buy something at the Pokemon Center (inside the Landmark Tower Mall) that is at least 500 yen, you will get a sticker as a free gift!
  • The Pikachu Event is going on from August 8 to August 16, 2015
  • The Showtimes
    • ①11am ②12pm ③2pm ④3pm ⑤4pm ⑥6pm
    • Each show lasts for about 20 minutes!
