Gotemba is one expensive outlet for branded items compared to the outlets in other countries. Gucci/ Dior/ Bottega Veneta/Burberry/ Coach & many other brands, the prices for last season discounted items are almost the same price as in Singapore big boutiques. The most saving you can get it 10% full boutique price of Singapore. May be cheap compared to Tokyo boutiques but definitaly in global standard. I spent the whole day looking for a bargain but came back empty handed. But the plus point: its located at a very pretty Hakone area. The jountry to & from Harkone Machi to Gotemba is really exceptional. I would have miss the best view of Mt Fuji if I hadn't visited the outlet. I might go back again for the scenery but definitely not for shopping.
