Bringing smiles to Tohoku children in the region devastated by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of 2011 and wishing for great Tohoku travels for our friends throughout Japan, the POKÉMON with YOU Train will get a makeover for a new look starting July 15, 2017. The new car concept will be "parents and children having fun with Pikachu together." Enjoy a fun outing with the lively Pikachu.
