Retail therapy

Gotemba City attracts many visitors who use it as a base to explore Mt Fuji and the five lakes region. However, the most well-known attraction is the Chelsea Premium Outlets shopping zone. Featuring over 200 famous brands from Japan and abroad, serious shoppers may need more than a day to explore the outlet fully. Weekends and holidays are perhaps not the best times to go—it's not unusual for all 5,000 parking spaces to be filled.

Relax in the green

A far more peaceful way to pass the time in Gotemba is the Chichibu-no-miya Memorial Park. Once a summer home for the royal family, this park features a 280-year-old house and a number of cherry blossom trees. The house and grounds are open to the public.
