There are 2 points to be careful using fitting room.

2. Some SHIMAMURA shops make a rule that the numbers of clothes you can bring into fitting room are limited. You can see the sign at fitting room door. Most of the munber is 3 items. If you have many clothes to want to try on, bring 3 items each fitting and try to go fitting room many times.

In Japan, the price tag of other shops are not include tax, but SHIMAMURA’s price tag includes it. You can enjoy shopping without worrying about the extra money of tax.
There are many attractive points of SHIMAMURA and I strongly recommend the place for foreign people too.
According to my research, the less crowded time is 10AM ～4PM of weekday because it is crowded by children of afterschool and their mothers after the time and weekend. It is recommended to go the time earlier than 4PM if you want to see many clothes.
