Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Cafe in Shibuya
Pokemon still keeping it popular
The Guest Cafe&diner on the 7th Floor of Shibuya PARCO PART 1 has had many different themed cafes before from Hello Kitty to Funasshi Cafe. Opened from January 9th, the Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire cafe is an adorable attraction for anyone in or visiting the Shibuya area.
The cafe offers a variety of Pokemon themed foods, deserts, and beverages. They also have a goods shop on the opposite side for people who would like to purchase some plushies or novelty goods. It's a great and fun experience for Pokemon fans.
The cafe is open until end of Febuary, however with the popularity of Pokemon the chances of being able to walk in are quite slim and you will most likely have to wait to get in. One thing to note is they have a ticket number system (The ticket machine right next to the cafe) where you get a number and wait for your number to be called. A good thing about this is if you have a phone, you can scan the provided QR code to sign up for their messaging system. You get sent to a website which directs you to send a blank e-mail, and they will message you when you can line up to get into the cafe. When I went, I drew a number around 150 and the current number was about 50. They told me it would be about 3 hours so I left and came back. Sure enough just a few minutes before the 3 hour mark they sent me an alert message to come to the cafe. So reservations in advance are not necessary. Wait times will also depend on what day you go, as more people are likely to attend on weekends.
Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Cafe is open from January 9th to February 28th. Check it out if you are in the Shibuya area!
