Gotemba premium outlets are placed in Gotemba city, Shizuoka. Gotemba is very close to a famous hot spring resort, Hakone. Because of easy access from Tokyo and the views of Mt. Fuji, this is one of the most popular outlet malls in Japan. These days, many groups of Chinese tourists come here for shopping. The huge mall has more than 200 shops including high-class brands. In Japan, the word ‘outlets’ means the shops selling products for discount prices.
Although it was a freezing cold day, the mall was so crowded with people carrying shopping bags. Apparently, this place has nothing to do with Japan’s loooong recession.
