Hi gorgeous, how are you? As we expected again, we can’t easily remember what were we exactly doing this whole March, because why? Yap, 31 days of March really went so fast and truth be honest I had no idea what exactly I did this month, my days were so unproductive beside struggled with ‘HTML & CSS-things’ and re-arranging every content of this blog, I’ve been so confused and as far as I remember I’ve been used my 16Gigabytes of internet these past four days, how crazy is that? I need to maintain everything especially my wallet carefully start now. Okay, let’s stop the nagging here.
I’m so sorry for forgetting to share these photos I managed to take while I was strolling around Gotemba Premium Outlets, actually I already mentioned about this place on my blog HERE BEFORE. And this morning, my friend asked me about something (to be precise “shoes”) which he should ask for as souvenir because his dad is currently in Japan, without doubt I mentioned about Gotemba because it is a nice place for a day of shopping with a lot of variety and reasonable prices and believe it or not his dad was at Gotemba at the time we talked about this, directly he sent bbm to his dad. Well, that's the little reason why I suddenly want to post about Gotemba and I guess you are wondering what the heck is Gotemba, right? Don't worry, I'll explain and share my experience today :)
First day in Japan, we planned to go to Mount Fuji (next post) and on our way, we drop by Gotemba Premium Outlets in hope to shop some cheap and good stuffs there! And I did bought quite a fair bit *big smile*
Before we went to Gotemba, we had Udon & Bento as our meals at Kameya restaurant in Gotemba city. The meals was so delicious <3
| What I Wore : MISSISSIPPI jeans / NIKE shoes |
I bought some snacks and cookies for my lecturer, friends and family here, if you happen to have your meal at Kameya restaurant, this shop located next to the restaurant, there's a shop inside the restaurant too.
Houses we found on our way to Gotemba, so cute minimalism and unique, agree?
GOTEMBA PREMIUM OUTLETS, FUKASAWA GOTEMBA-SHI, SHIZUOKA, JAPAN
The Gotemba Premium Outlets are Japan's most popular outlet mall located in Gotemba City at the base of Mount Fuji. The mall features 210 stores along with a number of restaurants, food courts and a 50 meter high ferris wheel.
You can see the list of brands HERE. It's crazy here, everything almost on SALE promo lol! It's like a whole town filled range from everyday items to luxury goods with known brands and small brands of fashion, sports, food, household goods, electronics (from Japanese labels to international labels). Because I only had 3 hours to shop here, so I went to look for Nike, Adidas, GAP, Kate Spade New York, Marc by Marc Jacobs and MK Michel Klein (ended up buying one pair shoe there, wait for another post of my OOTD wearing things I bought at Gotemba soon). Literally, the prices are not ridiculously cheap but they are better on average than what you will find at regular retail shops in Japan (Ginza, Harajuku or Shibuya). Most of the stores accept credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard.
Honestly, I really didnt spend much money here, I regret it though T.T
I promise I'll save more money so that I could buy these shoes someday when I come back to Japan.
Conclusion : When you're in Japan, you should visit Gotemba premium outlet if you love to shop! You'd definitely be able to find all the brands from Japan & overseas that are cheaper than what you can find outside! Next post about Tokyo soon, okay <3
