Tips for budget ladies clothing shopping in Yokohama
2019.07.15

It is nearly a middle of July but the tsuyu - rainy season is still soundly there, thwarting travel plans. Still, there are other activities you can enjoy, especially during the rainy season! One of them is clothes shopping! Many malls offers a big sales during the rainy days to lure people to do shopping despite uninviting to go out weather. In this article I will give some tips for budget ladies clothes shopping.

First of all, where to buy clothes while living in Yokohama?

Well, my advice is: just go to Yokohama station. There is plenty of malls around the station, pretty everything you need can be found there. Actually, the number of shop malls and clothes stores here is so big, at first I did not have any clue where to go. As you arrive to Yokohama station with Sotetsu line from Hoshikawa station you are basically already in the first mall - JOINUS. The next one near the west exit is Takashimaya. Walking further from the station, there is Yokohama VIVRE. Going out through the east exit from the Yokohama station you will find yourself in mall could PORTA, then going further on the left side you will see an entrance to SOGO and on right side - Marui City. If you walk further around the station you will find even more malls! That is crazy! For the average person, with limited time and money to spend, it is very easy to feel overwhelmed. Where to begin?

If the budget is tight, I recommend Yokohama VIVRE. There are three shops there with very affordable prices. They are GU, Bershka and UNIQLO. Bershka, a Spanish brand, common in Europe countries may be closer to Western tastes and of course, sizes, when GU and UNIQLO has a choice of basic garment featuring Japanese fashion for a very affordable pricing. My favourite from this three is definitely UNIQLO. I have found a lots of really good clothes fitting really good on my European shapes (wide hips), cut in nice style, with good fabrics and in reasonable price. There are also women accesories shops in very good prices on the higher levels.

If you are happen to be in Japan during the bargains season I recommend the 4th floor of mall JOINUS. The whole floor is filled with great ladies wear and accesories! You can find a lots of different styles, from cute and girly to adult-sense styles. The prices are more reasonable there than on the lower levels (1 floor is overwhelming with the pricy brands shops like Louis Vitton...) and during the bargains season you can really made a great deal!
