  • You can spend an entire day here. Sprawling mall with many brands, you can find almost everything here. Very pet friendly too many dog owners with their pets playing in the field at the mall.
  • Always good deals. I like the layout and view of the place. Also like the food there. Not just clothes but also other house items at discounted prices can be bought. Also easily accessible from Tokyo by train or drive.
  • Actually a very good outlet store. Plenty of jaoanese fashion brands; some international (prices not interesting on the luxury stuff though) The food offer could be a tad better.
  • A playground which is inside the shopping mall for kids. Really a good place to bring the kids here. Many shops and restaurant here, you can have lunch, tea and dinner here too.
  • A shopping outlet with mostly American/western brands. As a foreigner, I would have liked to have seen more Japanese brands represented, but for locals and visitors from other Asian countries who want to go wild with duty free, I suppose it would be good. It is built so that the walkways are outdoors but entirely covered, so it is a good option for a rainy day. Our favourite spot was the souvenir court, where all the local specialties were available. We ended up drinking 3l of yogurt from a local winery (I know it sounds strange, but it's excellent) over the course of a few days.
