    Coming by here reminded me of Osaka Kuromon market, where most of the stalls/shops located here were selling foodstuffs (or as eateries and restaurants for BBQ/grilled seafood and meat). Just like all other shopping streets, this place is covered over a long stretch of walkway and regardless rain or shine out there, you can shop or eat in peace! It's a huge place and so if you plan to come here, do allocate sufficient time!

    As it was weekend and getting closed to evening, the place was quite crowded as many locals/visitors rushed here for their dinner and thus many eateries had queues formed up! It's a good place to indulge and experience local food culture and tastes and surely it's a good place to taste Kyoto's flavour too!

    People here were friendly and handed out samples too and so you can try before deciding to dine or buy the foodstuffs.

    And just next to it is another shopping street, Sanjo, which I will review separately, but that's more for shopping for lifestyle products like fashion, shoes, bags, toys, souvenirs etc.

    For visitors taking the Shinkansen to Kyoto, you will not miss this place, the JR Kyoto station! It has so much to offer, restaurants, cafes, departmental stores, theatre, boutique stores etc within the station and can keep you occupied for hours!

    What I want to review is the "Great Staircase"! This staircase is 10th storey tall which you can choose to walk up (or take the escalator at the side). It was awesome, spectacular and nice and from the top floor and look down, the people passing by looked like miniatures!

    And at the top floor, it's an observatory, where you can have a good bird eye's view of the city of Kyoto and of course, you will not miss the city's landmark, the Kyoto Tower!

    And there's also the skybridge where you can walk around and enjoy the view of the station building too!

    It's a great place to spend a day here, regardless rain or shine out there!

    I was there the middle of December. On a weekday. It was crowded as always. Nice shops to look at with costumes. Interesting food trucks but with a long queue. Not many locals in costumes. Maybe the weekend or in the evening is better to go.

    MUST eat the takoyaki balls. Self-service & generous toppings. Most importantly, it is cheap and made on the spot.

    If you're out for discounted branded luxury goods, there are a lot of choices.

    For foreign tourists, do bring passports as there are 10% tax rebate which are sorted here, not at the airport, which is rather convenient.
    We took the Shinkansen bullet train to Gotemba, but took a coach on the return trip to Tokyo city, which was convenient as it was easier to just load shopping bags in the coach available at premium outlet itself. Our coach brought us straight from premium outlet to Tokyo Station.

    There's a nice clean prayer room for Muslims, but no warm water for ablutions. So during wintertime, ablution was rather inconvenient.

    Visited with a friend. Wonderful quiet time surrounded by art. Had a nice outdoor path with large artwork against the backdrop of trees. Parking fee for each entrance, next t it's entrance.

    A nice restaurant within its ground an accessible without museum ticket too. There is a separate cafe in the lounge area as well.

    This outlet mall is situated just in front of shinkansen station and very accesible. The mall is very huge with many brand stores selling outlet items. The price is very reasonable for some brands. Sports wears such as Addidas and New Balance are worth buying if you can find your size.
    The mall is full of people despite pandemic and people can spend hours for shopping in this place.

    Roppongi Hills is a fabulous place for window shopping and it also has Tokyo City View, a great observation deck from which you can view the city.

    Plenty of high end shops in Roppongi Hills but the best is surely the gorgeous dog hotel with on-site grooming area. A pet lover’s paradise.

    I always stop by this mall after a nice walk at Shinjuku Gyoen. The food hall is great and of course shopping

    Lots of shops and places to eat, though it becomes very busy at lunchtime. Many of the shops were quite unique, specializing in particular toy brands or movie/TV series, or one selling plastic replica food. Very interesting to look around.

    Took a little walk before dinner at Union Square. Many high-end stores and good supermarket in the basement. Also like to speciality store that sell sauce and hot pot broth base in B1. Nice place to walk around and have a meal. But not cheap at all!

    Good little shopping centre near Disneyland

    We had a nice dinner at the Thai restaurant, lovely food and excellent service

    There was just a line up to eat at all outlets - 30-60 minutes both nights

    The second night we decided not to go rush hour but it was still 4mins at 9pm

    Interesting area abundant with fresh and live seafood, restaurants and shops. Good for a hour or so walk through and right next to the JR Station.

    Massive shopping centre with a big robot. Hard to beat. Oh, lets only 63 characters so here is some filler.
