Everybody loves a bargain. Especially here in Japan, where paying for retail goods can be high for imported items. So here we list several American-style outlet shopping malls, where a wide assortment of goods are sold at outlet or discounted prices.  Many of them are easily accessible by train, while others offer direct bus services from the center of town.

1. Venus Fort

Access: Tokyo Teleport Station

Hours: 11:00 am-9:00 pm (shops), 11:00 am-11:00 pm (restaurants)

Website: https://www.venusfort.co.jp/multi/index_e.html

Unlike the other malls featured here, Venus Fort is actually located in a relatively downtown part of Tokyo. This also makes it a lot smaller and more compact compared to the other outlets. It doesn’t have its shops lined in an open-air plaza, and is actually part of a regular shopping mall complete with regular stores and entertainment options. The 3rd floor, which is the Venus Outlet, has about 50 shops such as Levi’s, Franc France, Beams and other fashion brands. Located in Odaiba, it is easily accessible on the Rinkai train line, and is a short ride from Osaki station.

Mitsui Outlet Park is actually a chain of outlet malls around Japan in locations mentioned above (for the greater Tokyo area).

Just like Premium Outlet brand from the US, there are Premium Outlet malls here in Japan. Shisui Premium Outlets opened in 2013 and, considering its proximity to Narita Airport, attracts many foreign customers. The mall has 180 shops and features both Japanese and international brands. Due to its close proximity to the airport, there is a special program called the Narita Transit Program, which entitles those spending a layover in Narita to a souvenir and discount coupon, and additional coupons for tourists.
