Let the Adventure Begin
Every trips begin with a 'check-in'. We head down to guests' hotel after our fateful encounter at Haneda Airport. Little do they know, I've got a special trip prepared for two adorable poke-trainers.
Helping a Poke-Bretheren Out
You know what they say, you can't geek out on an empty stomach! Once full, we made our way to our journey's end, Pokemon Center Tokyo. Needless to say, my Poke-Brothas had the time of their life.
Be the Very Best Like No One Ever Was
After catching all of dem goodies, we made our way to a nearby cafe for much needed rest. During that time, I drew my Switch out and have a friendly rivalry of Mario Kart with the kids
Can't Stop, Won't Stop
Before returning to the hotel, we got sidetracked at a nearby Sanrio Store. Populated with tons of unique and colorful shops, restraining one's wallet from going zonk at Ikebukuro is not an easy task!

See you again
Both Syennie's kids took me back! I genuinely saw myself in them. Their constant awe and excitement during our visit to Pokémon Center reminded me of my very first visit to Japan. It is incredible to see how Pokémon allow me and those kids to connect regardless our age different.
