Do you know the Pikachu Post in Yokohama City?
This is the first Pokemon mailbox(post box) in eastern Japan, and is installed by Japan Post Co., Ltd. and Pokemon Co., Ltd. in the Yokohama Bay area.
This cute mailbox was set up for a limited time until June 30, 2022, but it seems that it has been extended until June 30, 2026 due to its popularity!
It is also close to Minatomirai and Sakuragicho Station, which are popular with tourists.
Please drop in if you come near.
Pikachu and Eevee are in front of Yokohama City Hall!
The mailbox is installed on the main street in front of Yokohama City Hall.
Take Exit 1a of "Bashamichi" Station on the Minatomirai Line, and you will see the back of Pikachu and Eevee.
