Kawaii Fujiya Peko-chan Milky Restaurant in Shibuya, Tokyo,Arts
Gotemba Premium Outlets
What is a visit to Tokyo without dropping by or
seeing the most famous symbol of Japan, Mt. Fuji? Probably not complete. If you’re on the lookout for a place to shop (within the budget) and
at the same time a spot for sight-seeing, we totally recommend a trip to Gotemba Premium Outlets in Hakone.
Most (if not all) my favourite brands are there,
let me drop some names: Adidas, Balenciaga, Cath
Kidston, Chloe, Dior, Disney, Francfranc, Furla,
Gelato Pique, Harrods, Havaianas, Isetan, Jill
Stuart, Kate Spade New York, Lowrys Farm,
Moussy, Nike, Nikon, Petit Bateau, Saint Laurent, Sly, Snidel, Tory Burch, Valentino and
many more. -Ashley
How to get there?
From Tokyo, take the JR Shinkansen to Mishima
Station, transfer trains to Numazu, and transfer
again to Gotemba. From Gotemba, there’s a free
shuttle bus directly to Gotemba Premium Outlet.
From Shinjuku, take the Odakyu Limited Express
“Romance Car Asagiri” to Gotemba. Again from
Gotemba, there’s a free shuttle bus directly to
Gotemba Premium Outlet. (Source)
Aside from shopping tax free, Gotemba Premium
Outlet offers a wide variation of restaurants,
kiosks, and cafes such as Haagen-Dazs (our personal favourite!), Crazy Crepes, Gelato Pique Cafe
Creperie, Godiva (must try!), Tully’s Coffee and
