Pokémon Centre

If you feel like going on a shopping trip in your down-time, why not head on over to the Pokémon Center? There are so many unique and unusual items to purchase from the show, including branded merchandise, toys, food and games – some of which you won’t find anywhere else! Make sure to take a photo with the life-size Pokémon at the entrance on your way in! 

Pokémon Café

After you’ve shopped ‘til you’ve dropped, take some time out and relax at the Pokémon Café! With food shaped like your favourite Pokémon plus a visit from Pikachu as some of the highlights, you’ll want to keep coming back again and again.  Gotta catch all these experiences.

Cat Island

Live out your crazy cat lady dreams and visit Cat Island in Aoshima! Since becoming popular online, tourists have visited this island that has more cats than humans – it’s the purrrfect destination for cat lovers. Feed the sweet kitties at designated areas and admire what the famous Cat Island has to offer.

Sanrio Puroland

Spend the day at Sanrio Puroland if you love all things Hello Kitty, Gudetama and more. There are plenty of mini-games to play and photo opportunities to take advantage of, including a Hello Kitty boat ride and a My Melody & Kuromi car ride which takes you around Mariland!
