Kyoto is known for a number of historical and cultural properties, and so there are many tourists from all over the world visiting Kyoto throughout the year. But in the meantime, Kyoto is famous for a number of corporate giants which have been successful globally. Of such enterprises, Nintendo is also headquartered in Kyoto. In other words, Kyoto is the place where "Pokemon" was born.
In downtown Kyoto, near the busiest area, there is a relatively new office building "Suina Muromachi". That is where Pokemon Center Kyoto is located. I visited there recently for the first time. It was amazing ! Hundreds of Pokemon plush dolls were there for sale. Also, there were T-shirts, lunch boxes, towels, etc. with Pokemon characters printed on them. The guests were not just small kids. Many of the guests were twenties, thirties, and even the folks of my age (50+).
I took a video in Pokemon Center and you will see how amazing this place is. When visiting Kyoto, I strongly recommend that you stop at this place.
