Our next destination after lunch is Gotemba Premium Outlet. We make a mistake and wait at the wrong bus stand. After asking around and waiting for hours, we finally got to get up to the right bus heading to JR Gotemba station. There is free shuttle bus operated between the JR Gotemba and the outlet.
With the Hakone Freepass, we pay an additional 870 Yen per person for the return highway bus from JR Gotemba to Shinjuku. We make our reservation for the return bus at 7.25pm right after we reach the JR Gotemba station.
Didn’t manage to take any photo in the outlet and I am really short of time to explore the huge outlet! GAP is huge but the price not really that cheap so I come out with empty hands. Osh Kosh is quite expensive too, it still needs about 1500 yen for a T after the discount, my budget is less than 1000 Yen for T.
There is lot of people carrying the loots from COACH and first thing come into my mind is, the bag must be very cheap! LOL I spend quite some time in COACH outlet and finally bought the sling bag. No time to explore the Agnes B outlet shop as we have to rush the shuttle bus back to JR Gotemba at 7am!
Sadly, the shuttle bus has just drive off when we reach the bus stand!!!! If I didn’t manage to take the 7.25pm bus return to Shinjuku then I have to take the last bus which is 7.45pm. Also, if msau didn’t see me, I am sure she wills think that I was ‘kidnap’ by the branded shop!
No choice, we take the taxi and show the drive the bus will depart at 7.25pm. The driver is very ‘keng’ as he manages to send us to the bus stand sharp at time!
