Shopping at the Outlet Mall

There are so many stalls of brand name stores in Sano City. It's like shopping in Washington State in the United States!

The outlet mall here is very popular. A lot of the Japanese like to get brand name with good deals!

It is surprising to see most of the U.S. brand name stores are mostly found at the outlet malls in Sano City! The design of the mall is also the same as those found in Washington State!

Besides the shopping malls, there are also "Used Stores" in Sano City. Make sure to check these out because they sell inexpensive Japanese items like potteries, paintings, Kabukis, and other knick-knacks.

There are also many old Japanese carvings and antique artworks and crafts stores in Sano City. Make sure to give your best deal to the sellers to get the best price of what you wanted to buy!

Brand Name Stores in Sano City

At the Sano Outlet Mall, I found stores like Nike, Coach, Diesel, Toys R Us, Carter, Gap, American Eagle, Paul Smith, Brooks Brothers, etc.

There are also a lot of European brand names like Gucci, Armani, Louis Vuitton, Furla, Harrods, Kenzo, Escada, Frapbois, Royal Coppenhagen, etc.

Shopping with my family!

I ended up buying at the Outlet Mall. My brother-in-law bought some Casio watch. I bought an Armani purse that was on sale and some Nike t-shirts! The large Nike shirts are on sale over here! Most Japanese sizes are either small or petite so, the large and the XL sizes are on sale! They are way cheaper than the Nike t-shirts in the United States!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The large sizes of t-shirts are not saleable here so they are on sale!
  • Cons:Other brands are very expensive!
  • In a nutshell:It's so much fun shopping over here. There are so many things to see!
