Rinku Premium Outlets Details

This two-story outlet mall is styled like that of the American port city of Charleston. Rinku Premium Outlets has a good line up of stores of the most famous (and luxurious) Japanese and International brands. These stores can be found in the two areas of Rinku Premium Outlets. These areas are the Main Side, which is known to some as the GAP Side due to the famous brand being seen prominently from the highway. It is also the largest of the two areas. The other one is the Sea Side which is known to some as the Burberry Side due to the same reason as the other one.

Welcome to Rinku Premium Outlets

For foreign tourists, make sure to bring your passport. You need to avail of the tax refund for your purchases and also to get the discount coupon that you can get in the small office in front of the GAP store. These coupons can get you as much as a 20% discount on some products.

All those luxury brands in one place...

... one picturesque place that is.

It's best to visit during the weekdays

It's perfect for window shoppers too.

Have you seen your favorite brand?

There's a place where your children would surely enjoy

This place won't be complete without that gatchapon.

What I like about Rinku Premium Outlets is its location. It is conveniently located near Kansai International Airport (KIX). Therefore, it is a great destination for those last-minute shopping moments.

Trying out this meal...

I got to visit Rinku Premium Outlets twice already. The first was way back in 2014 and the latest was during the second day of our 2018 Japan trip. I was not able to fully explore this place during my first visit because I was there only to buy some winter apparel and I was pressed for time. It was only during my second visit that I got the chance to do it because we were there to accompany our friends. However, there were a lot of instances that I was tempted to buy some items that I really liked particularly those on sale. I just fought the urge to do so as my family and I will still be in Japan for 20 more days.

Here's some picture-perfect spot...
