Gotemba Premium Outlets in Shizuoka prefecture is a popular shopping getaway with about 290 stores selling Japanese and international brands. The outlet mall is located at the foot of Mt Fuji and on sunny days you can enjoy scenic views of Japan’s majestic mountain.

While there are express buses from Shinjuku and Ueno stations going straight to Gotemba Premium Outlets, it’s now possible to head there from Shibuya, too. Just take a bus on the Shibuya / Fuji-Q Highland / Kawaguchiko / Mt Fuji route and get off at the popular outlet mall. The bus departs from Shibuya Mark City, making one stop at Futako-Tamagawa Rise Rakuten Crimson House before heading straight to Gotemba Premium Outlets in under two hours.

Buses towards Gotemba Premium Outlets depart from Shibuya Mark City twice a day at 8.30am and 10.30am. However, if you’re a shopaholic, note that the two buses going back to Shibuya depart as early as 2.10pm and 4.10pm from the mall’s bus stop.

A one-way ticket from the Shibuya or Futako-Tamagawa bus stops to Gotemba Premium Outlets costs ¥1,800 (children ¥900) and can be booked via the website and app. Tickets can be booked up to one month in advance.
