    Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo in Ikebukuro has a shopping area that’s larger than the one at Pokémon Center Tokyo DX, and rare items abound. From plushies to socks to mugs, everything Pokémon can be found here. Snap a picture of Pikachu riding Charizard statue at the entrance!

    Pokémon GO

    This section is for the Pokémon GO trainers. We’ll go over not only the best spots, or “nests,” to get your hands on those rare and legendary Pokémon, but also the locations that have the highest density of Pokémon Gyms and Raids.

    You can find most of the Pokémon nests in parks, often along the water, showing the designers’ wish to get people outside in green spaces for exploration of their own.

    The Gyms and Raids are located in dense population areas, so you can take part in the social aspect of the game and get involved in the community.

    Pokémon GO Paradise

    新宿Set just south of Shinjuku Station’s West Exit, right in front of Yodobashi Camera, lies what’s known as Pokémon Plaza. At this location you can grab a seat on a bench while you catch Pokémon and collect items, so it’s a great place for trainers to camp out.

    And you’ll want to after hearing why Pokémon Plaza is so popular in the GO community. There’s an extremely dense concentration of Pokéstops here, and since so many trainers come to play Pokémon GO, Lure Modules (items that attract more Pokémon for everyone around in 30-minute bursts) are almost constantly in effect.

    For those looking to gain experience and level up, this is the place to be. Special events at Pokémon Plaza are particularly crowded, though.

    錦糸町The most famous spot in Japan for Pokémon GO trainers is the South Exit of Kinshichō Station. A short walk from the South Exit will take you through lots of Pokestops and Gyms, and Lure Modules are in effect nearly every day, around the clock.

    This has earned the area the title of “Pokémon Paradise,” and it’s the perfect environment to make the best use of your play time. You might even make another travel buddy while walking around and enjoying your stint in paradise.

    Most Relaxing Park for Pokémon GO

    Hibiya Park

    Hibiya Park

    Hibiya Park is our recommendation for a laid-back location to play Pokémon GO. The winding paths and tranquil ponds give you a great space to stretch your legs, and there are also areas that have high concentrations of Pokéstops.

    You might even run into one of the park’s periodic events to add some spice to the Pokémon life. In either case, there’s plenty of shade and Pokémon to catch, so take your time strolling through the park for a nice afternoon of active gaming.
