Pikachu Outbreak(ENGLISH)



As soon as we arrived at Sakuragi-Cho station where is the nearest station for Pikachu outbreak venue we found a Pikachu in the distance.


I couldn’t believe my eyes for a moment.

Compared with people walking on the street the pikachu’s  scale was too large.

It seems about 500 meters until we would reach pikachu’s locating. pikachu of this event seemed very big.


Gradually approaching, we could understand pikachu’s real scale. According to event’s explain, this large pikachu’s height was about 15 meters.

That was reason why we could see Pikachu figure from far place.



I took a Pikachu’s picture from under his chin. That reminds me that his scale was really large.


Unfortunately we couldn’t enter inside Pickachu.


During this event was held we found people who are wearing Pikachu’s costume.  So children could play a role of Pickachu!


Sometimes there were many kinds of Pikachu in Yokohama during this event.


All participants looked really happy.
