Uniqlo seems to be on a roll with new store openings: there's Uniqlo Harajuku, the refurbished Uniqlo Tokyo global flagship in Ginza, and this exciting new-concept Uniqlo hybrid retail-park at Mitsui Outlet Park Yokohama Bayside which opened back in April.
The new Uniqlo Park houses both Uniqlo and its sister retailer GU. Inside you’ll find Uniqlo’s signature staples for men, women and children, as well as trendy fashion from GU. Don't miss the spacious GU Shoe Lab, where you can have your pick from the brand’s fashionable, yet affordable, footwear line. The store also features a flower corner offering fresh, seasonal bouquets from ¥390.
This megastore is not called Uniqlo Park for nothing. The big draw here is the outdoor park and playground, which is spread out over the front of the store. Especially worth a visit if you’ve got little ones in tow; the whole family can enjoy the jungle gym, slides and even the bouldering wall. For a bit of greenery, olive trees from Teshima in the Seto Inland Sea are also planted around the rooftop garden.
Uniqlo Park opens out to the Yokohama Bay, giving visitors a vantage point to take in the surrounding seaside views. It’s conveniently located right next to the Mitsui Outlet Park, meaning you can turn your visit into a full-on shopping spree.
