Come summer, get ready for a flurry of adorable Pikachu in Yokohama!

Expect to see lots of dancing pikachus in parades, on water, and also light shows with entertaining digital effects.

With over 2000 Pikachu mascots spread over the Minato Mirai Tokyu Square, Grand Mall Park, Yokohama Museum of Art, Queen’s Square, and the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, you'll fall in love with the electric rodent all over again. Similarly dotted all over the place will be numerous photo spots for you to snap a few commemorative pictures.

For the largest event of the Pikachu festival, head to Rinkai Park where up to 50 Pikachu will be dancing up a storm.
