Last year the first ever permanent Pokémon Cafe opened up right next to the Pokémon Center DX in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi district, and ever when you consider that then it is been offering seasonal treats inclusive of Sword and Shield starter plates and Halloween Pokémon dishes.
Flagship Pokémon Pikachu has often been featured at the menu a lot, but now the electric critter is getting a as a substitute unexpected makeover for the 2020 cherry blossom season in Japan–sakura afro Pikachu sweets and lattes.
As a one year anniversary celebration, the Nihonbashi Pokémon Cafe might be providing two items featuring Pikachu with an afro comprised of cherry blossoms. The first is the Sakura Afro Pikachu Fruit Sandwich Cake, which takes a Pikachu-formed cake and sandwiches it with “fluffy” strawberry cream and sakura decorations.
The second is adding a sakura afro motif Pikachu to the type of Pokémon you can choose as art to your latte–served in a Pokéball cup, of course.
Both objects can be to be had exclusively at the Nihonbashi Pokémon Cafe from March 14th to April 19th. Reservations may be made on-line as well.
