Mitsui Outlet Park Kisarazu is an outlet mall located in Kisarazu, just across from Yokohama by the Aqua-Line.
This mall currently houses 171 shops and is expected to expand to between 200 and 250 to become the largest outlet mall in Japan.
Shops here include foreign luxury brands, popular select shops, high-grade foreign and Japanese fashion, sports & outdoor items, accessories, gifts and miscellaneous fashion goods. Prices are supposedly always 30-50% off the normal retail prices!
Some shops provide Duty Free service for foreign tourists so do check with the information centre at the Outlet Park for the latest details.
English language floor guides (maps) are available and a call centre is also available to assist you if needed.
A Food Court is available if you start feeling peckish midway through your shopping expedition.
The food court seats around 850 people (of which about 200 are open-air terrace seats) and some of the famous eateries from all around Chiba Prefecture have set up shop here.
“Ocean View Terrace” which is located above the food court, commands breathtaking views looking out over Tokyo Bay and the Aqua-Line and on clear sunny days you can even see Tokyo Sky Tree and Mt. Fuji.
Other entertainment facilities are available as well. Those who may not want to shop can enjoy the 16-hole Crazy Golf (miniature golf) with its challenging obstacles. In addition, two spacious squares have been designed for children to play to their hearts’ content. There’s Pop Jet Square with a popular fountain show, and Kids Park, with fun playground equipment.
Unfortunately I was on a tight schedule and only spent 15min at this place, thus I wasn’t able to shop or check out all the available facilities and the view from the Ocean Terrace. Will probably drop by again the next time if I’m in the area.
