December prices in Gotemba Outlets

Hi,

I am thinking of going to Gotemba outlet malls in December. Can anyone advice me about the prices of the goods there? I'm looking for winterwear, shoes etc.

I would be grateful if you could list some sample prices too.

Thanks!

Outlet selection changes constantly since they are normally overstocks, seasonal closeouts, or pieces with quality issues. Therefore, it's really not possible to give sample prices that are meaningful. My general experience, having gone to three outlet malls in Japan plus other locations worldwide, is that they don't usually offer great deals. The good items will still be very expensive while the cheaper items are cheap for a reason.

Again, I don't think anyone can give you general price guide because the selection changes constantly. For example, Timberland shoes could have a wide price range depending on the style and functions. It's impossible to say Timberlands cost 10,000 Yen a pair because you could see anything from 5,000 to 20,000 Yen in the same shop depending on the specific pair.

Uniqlo is quite cheap even without outlet prices though so it's a good buy.

This is Gotemba Premium Outlet Mall website. It has been Winter Sale this week.

For Uniqlo, you can see items and price in this site. Remember, Uniqlo does some items on sale on every Saturday and Sunday; then back the price on Monday.

Gotemba is far from Tokyo, so transportation fee costs more. If you don't mind to see Mt. Fuji closely, or you don't visit to Fuji 5 lakes/Hakone; I don't think you need not go to Gotemba. There are two outlet mall companies in Japan -- Premium and Mitsui. Mitsui Outlet Park are closer to Tokyo. I suggest you to go Mitsui one in Minami Osawa, Hachioji City, Tokyo. It's 40 min. train ride from Shinjuku by Keio line, 390 yen. The mall is big and in front of station, and next to Ito Yokado. You can check winter items at Ito Yokado also.

Aeon Lake Town in Koshiga, Saitama prefecture is worth to visit for shopping if you can go far. There are two mall between a station -- Kaze and Mori. Get off Koshigaya Lake Town station by JR Musashino Line; 50 min., 540 yen from Shinjuku.
