Walking on Drift Ice
With around 240 stores, Mitsui Outlet Park Jazz Dream Nagashima is Japan’s largest outlet mall, and it is conveniently located just 70 minutes from Chubu Centrair International Airport. True to its name, Jazz Dream Nagashima has a very musical atmosphere, with such attractive and fun design features as musical notes and saxophones, pianos as street furniture and guitar-shaped clocks.
For keen shoppers, Jazz Dream Nagashima presents a dazzling array of options. These include an extensive selection of foreign luxury brands and an attractive range of popular Japanese fashion brands. All the stores offer discount prices, and many provide a duty-free service upon presentation of a foreign passport when purchasing.
As well as shopping, Jazz Dream Nagashima features many cafés, where you can enjoy a range of Japanese confectioneries, and traditional restaurants. My recommended restaurant is Ino, which offers three variations of the popular, delicious broiled river eel dish of hitsumabushi.
Close by Jazz Dream Nagashima are various leisure facilities, such as Nagashima Spa Land and the Nagoya Anpanman Children’s Museum. All of this makes for a truly wonderful day out.
