I always enjoy outlet shopping, especially in Japan where I find the styles they stock to fit the Asian body better. We drove to the Kobe-Sanda Premium Outlets from Okayama, which... read more

A great outlet, very well organized, where it is easy to park and where you find nice brands at decent prices. The restaurants there are also pretty good and the overall experience is quite nice. And last, the discounts can be pretty significant, so it Makes it a trip worth the drive.

This is the best place to shop, the environment is peaceful and there is a huge Aeon Mall located beside. There is a food court for food but not too many choices, so Aeon has much more selection. There is a direct bus departed 8.50am everyday from OCAT, Nanba Osaka and 3.50pm from the outlet back to OCAT. Reserve the... More

Great shopping if you are looking for designer brands at discounted prices. I was handbag shopping and found some great deals. Some stores sell tax free and others don't. A bit of a trek to get there, but the coach that takes you out is comfortable and we found the directions and information provided on the website easy enough to... More

A bit far, we went because a friend took us. The place is very clean, organized and accessible by public transport to those who doesnt own a car. There are many outlet stores and if you go in every store and check out their items, you will surely find something you need or want.

I've been to the premium outlet in Odaiba Tokyo and the crowd was crazy. You had to queue and wait for a table for lunch at their food eatery. With crying babies, large throngs of tour groups and the rain (it was pouring then), it was just a huge mess that was totally not enjoyable. Now, at Kobe Sanda outlet,... More

I always enjoy outlet shopping, especially in Japan where I find the styles they stock to fit the Asian body better. We drove to the Kobe-Sanda Premium Outlets from Okayama, which was on the way for us from Okayama to Naruto. The layout of the outlet is very consistent layout with other Premium outlets around the world - shops are... More

If you like shopping and like brands this is the place for you. Good range of brands and stores offers duty free for travelers. One thing I would say is that if you drive there be prepared for a highway/mountain drive plus there is a few toll booths on the way

The express train from Osaka station took 40mins directly to Sanda. Then just outside of the station we hopped onto a local bus that stopped directly at the doorstep of the outlet. The setting is similar to Gotemba outlet in Tokyo with all the known international brands like Bottega Veneta, YSL, Prada, Celine, etc. There are many local Japanese fashion... More

Frankly speaking, I didn't shop for branded items, so not very sure whether the prices here are at great deals or not. It's just that it's included in our tour, so we're here to see see look look. Only grabbed 2 pairs of Levi's jeans for hubby. However, I love the design and layout of the township was modeled on... More

We swinged by here when we headed to Kobe from Osaka. We rented a car from Sannomiya and drove here. The drive was about 45 minutes. If you are not renting a car, I would forget about it because it would be very difficult to get to as it is in the middle of no where after passing Mount Rokko.... More
