Pikachu Outbreak!

Of course Pikachu is a big deal here. Such a big deal that there are a few weeks every year where Pikachu outbreaks occur in Yokohama. It was a super hot day, but we fought through the heat and stayed long enough to get in on the Pikachu action!

These cute little tubbies have moves!

What could make this better? Being crowd interactive!

We were faced with giant grinning Pikachus at every turn.

Now for the main event... tons - a hundred, maybe? - of dancing Pikachus in Yokohama's Red Brick Warehouse square!

Wait for it... "Jump-u! Jump-u!" <ear wiggleeeeeeee!>
