Okachimachi JR station north exit 2pm sharp.

We will look at boots first - on special discount.

I bought and tested 18,000en boots and good. They were on sale 6,900en.Later.... Ogawamachi London Sports - trousers, shirts, hats, other clothing and rucksacks.
Ladies Marmot trousers bargain at 2,600en.

Ladies Trousers
Marmot ladies trousers for  2,540en (2,800 -15% extra). Others are about 3,500en but big brand names.
Hats are cheap also.

Try asking for old stock Exofficio trousers - good for March-December in most places. They are very cheap.




Boots!

Near London Sports in Okachimachi/Ueno I also  got a pair of Danner goretex vibram sole boots for 6,900en (supposed to be 17,000en). They are marked a little (1 black mark) so discounted. Maybe cheaper brand but look good/ About 80m past London Sports and corner shop on the right when walking from Okachimachi to Ueno.

I bought...
Danner TREKBLAZER IV  /  Danner TREKBLAZER 4 (sale 6,900en)


Most places online are selling these boots for 18,000en - this is a cheap shop! Shop is called 'Foot Monkey';

There are other designs and brands for men and women. Some very cheap like 3,000en.
