Are you a shopperholic like me? Love travelling, and always on the go for premium outlets? Well, if you are heading to Japan, this is one huge shopping factory outlet you must not miss! The Gotemba Premium Outlet ( 御殿場プレミアム・アウトレット ) is the flagship centre, and one of the largest in Japan. Located at Shizuoka Prefecture, it is situated on an extensive site within the view of World Cultural Heritage site, Mount Fuji.

On my last trip to Tokyo, my Japanese friends drove us to Gotemba Premium Outlet and we stopped by the Expasa rest area ( 談合坂 ) along the highway to take a break. There, visitors can have coffee, or shop for Japanese souvenirs such as these pretty heart-shaped Tokyo Pudding Omelettes ( 東京プリンオムレット ), Dango ( だんご ), and cute Tokyo Shio Hiyoko ( 東京塩ひよ子 ).

The drive to Gotemba Premium Outlet was so scenic. Although it was a cold and gloomy day with intermittent showers, we were lucky to have some clear shots of the magnificent Mount Fuji along the way. Stunning, isn't it?

    new review on my blog <<< Avon Mesmerize Red >>>
    have a nice day, a big kiss

  13. The place like paradise! :)
    PS. I send you email, beacause I had some problem with pop-up on your blog, but it's everything ok already! :)

  14. Love the location of this outlet. Beautiful. Nevertheless, I don't get any hype anymore on such outlets. Already quite a number, neither I am shopaholic. Fashion does not have to be about branding anyway. If we know how to carry ourselves, even affordable non branded things can make us look like a million.

  15. what a wonderful place!
    Japan is sooooo on my bucket list!

  16. Beautiful photos, must visit is someday

  17. As usual very interesting! Thanks a lot for sharing)
