Catch them All at Pokemon Center Sapporo Japan: Travel Guide

 Gonna Catch them All at Pokemon Center Sapporo (Japan)

Konichiwa! Shout out to all Pokemon Goers out there! Gonna catch them all ey?

I am freaking fascinated with this Pokemon Go free-to-play app!People who used to lock themselves out in the real world started mingling with random people, started making  new friends and begun creating new social groups for fun. The moment they downloaded this trendy game, people started visiting parks like flock of birds attacking Milan.

Two years ago I got blessed to be part of a sponsored trip to Japan. Luckily I was part of the chosen delegates to visit Hokkaido, Japan. Part of the various tourist attraction that we’ve been too was the Pokemon Center in Sapporo.
