    Tokyo Hachioujishi Minamiosawa 1-600
    An outlet mall conveniently located just a two-minute walk from Minami-osawa Station on the Keio Sagamihara Line. In addition to numerous domestic and international apparel brands and select life goods stores, the mall hosts an adult cultural activities school, pet shop, cafes, and restaurants. Concerts and other events are also frequently held amidst the attractive Provence-style architecture of the grounds.

    This outlet mall has many global brands but the prices are no way near what you get in USA. Of course it’s cheaper than Tokyo city but still not as fun.

    "The former residence of Jiro Shirasu and his wife, Masako. Shirasu played an important role in post-World War II diplomacy in Japan. On a hill in verdant Tsurukawa, it has a museum, restaurant, and cafe on site. Once known as ""the coolest man in Japan,"" he studied English at Cambridge University, and was said to have argued with GHQ (General Headquarters of the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers), even standing up to MacArthur. Although women had been barred from performing traditional Noh theater, she appeared on stage and was so successful she even had a stage name. The facility is replete with reminders of the couple, and you can even enjoy Western-style fare that faithfully recreates their meals."
