Certainly smaller than Osaka and Tokyo, but still has a great range of merchandise suitable for any fan. Exclusives only available in Kyoto too. Easy to access, great for a browse through when you're in the zone to shop.

Kyoto is one of the newer Pokemon centres to open and features the same items found at other Pokemon Centres. The Kyoto store also sells Kyoto exclusive items, most with Ho-oh on them. Also be sure to check out the coin machines, each Pokemon centre...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
