Get Gucci by Saving 70% Off!

Speaking about Gotemba Premium Outlet, it would be unfair not to talk about the price being so much cheaper from the official shop. Whoops, take it easy, Gotemba doesn’t sell fake products! All items are originally manufactured by the official brands.

However, you have to be careful that Premium Outlets may sell items that have long been produced or rejected items that cannot be sold at the official store.

The positive point is that they are only selling new unused items at a cheaper price. It is almost impossible to find a premium outlet that sells second-hand items.

Happy Hour is Waiting For You!

Not only offering cheaper prices, but Gotemba also has an iconic happy hour!

You can enjoy happy hour at a discounted price, up to 90% within certain hours. The deals are unique to each store, but some stores are serving happy hours at the same time.

Another offer is that they may offer you a buy-one-get-one-free on any items that you like. Truly a dream come true for shopaholics right?

Gotemba itself has an alluring old European-style environment, superbly suitable for adding to your photo collection.
