Several hundred Pikachus started flooding the streets of Japan one fine day and no one knew what was happening. No, it wasn't anything remotely associated with the game Pokemon, that has caught the fancy of everyone around us. But an annually celebrated festival. 





Called Pika fiesta, it has been happening since 2014 known as Pikachu Tairyou Hassei- Chu. Lasting for a week’s time, it is a celebration of all things Pokemon.
