Great selection but Japanese sizes !

I don't go to Japan to shop to clothes. Not because I wouldn't want to because the Japanese have a uniques sense of style. No but because Japanese men and women are a lot smaller... read more

The place is huge but unfortunately, the shops are not so attractive compared to others that I have been to....like La Village, Paris. Even the prices are almost the same as in Malaysia. I prefer Johor Premium Outlet better that here in Kobe Sanda....not only that the place is too far from town, you need to catch a bus to... More

My wife and I love outlet shopping and have shopped in the US, France, UK and Japan. This was our first visit to the Kobe-Sanda Premium Outlets, and we found the shop list to be similar to the other 2 Premium Outlets we visited previously (Gotemba and Sano) and probably not worth going out of the way to visit, unless...

I don't go to Japan to shop to clothes. Not because I wouldn't want to because the Japanese have a uniques sense of style. No but because Japanese men and women are a lot smaller than the average person from North America or Europe. Anything over a 32 inch waist or 40 inch chest and you are out of luck.... More

The place is HUGE, with a lot of outlet shops. Many shops are name brand and VERY expensive. There is a bus from Sanda station, but check online for the bus number at the outlet's website, because nothing is in English. For women. If you are a size 10, like me, you won't find anything. In most shops, all I... More

A big outlet that many local Japanese people visited. We need to take the bus from Kobe train station to the outlet and the bus run once an hour in weekday. If you show your passport in the customer service center, they will give you a coupon book (extra discount). One shop surprised us is "A Bathing Ape Pirate Store".... More

Outlet shopping is a hit-and-miss thing. You find great items this time, but you may find nothing next time. I only bought 2 pairs of trainers from New Balance this time, whereas my wife got 10+ items from Moussy, Dou Dou, Vivienne Westwood, Tomorrowland and Gap. We always stop at this outlet on our way from Arima Onsen back to... More

A little inconvenient to get to if you do not have own transportation. However, they do have regular shuttles to/from Sanomiya. The outlet has a good variety of shops from normal to premium. Also being next to Aeon mall is an added bonus. May be needs some improvement on English signs for tourists.

My choice bargains would be sports apparel and North Face ,got a sturdy pair of hiking pants at good prices. Other branded stuff like handbags are so-so ,limited variety or models .My... More

Had a couple of hours there but was pretty bored. The brand that was worth going more was North Face. It was about half priced for certain bag models. As for european brands, going to The Mall in Florence would definitely be more worth it.

This outlet is a "must go" shopping place. We went there on our 1 day of our trip and I can tell I don't need to do any other shopping after here. I love shopping at Kobe-Sanda Premium Outlet and I will go there whenever I am in Osaka and Kobe!! Happy Shopping!!
