You’ve probably seen clips of a parade of giant dancing Pikachu on Youtube, but it can’t beat seeing (and dancing with) the real thing.

For those of you who are old, without kids or haven’t been in Japan for long, Pikachu is the most well-known Pokemon (pocket monster) from the popular kids’ TV program/game/commercial phenomenon.

The 1,000-strong Pikachu army will be at different places all around Minato Mirai in Yokohama from the 10th of August until the 16th. Venues have included Yokohama Landmark Tower (Super dance unit show), Yokohama World Porters (Pikachu Hula Dance and ‘Movie theatre where you can meet Pikachu’), Yokohama Cosmo World (Pikachu Ferris Wheel), Minatomirai Station (Pikachu Photo studio) and JR Sakuragicho Station (Pikachu Station).

    Amazing. Wish we had more of this in the west.

    Would it be possible for someone to translate the website for me and tell me where they’ll be on Friday?
