Daiei Shopping Mall: The first floor has a grocery store (like most Japanese department stores). Then there are many floors and shops, including a book store with an English section and a food court. There is a gate (for walking only) onto base through the back side of the Daiei. It is only open weekdays from 0600-2000 and is closed on U.S. holidays.
100 Yen store, “Daiso”: There are 2 of these “dollar store equivalents” located across from the Daiei. Walk the crosswalk over Rt.16 and walk down the side street in front of Daiei with a “Mikasa” store on your left and an Italian Pizza restaurant on your right. In the rear of the office building with the pizza restaurant, go through a narrow hallway leading to an escalator/staircase. Take it to the second floor. You will see a Subway (the sandwich chain) and 2 stores across from each other that are both “Daiso” stores.
Blue Street: There are multiple shops and restaurants down “Blue Street.” Look up because many buildings have shopping on several floors. (Many stores and restaurants are closed on Wednesdays.) Look for: More’s City (a “mall” behind Yokosuka Chuo station) Saikaya department store (with up-scale department store in basement) Gap located on 2nd floor of Saikaya department store Seiyu department store (with grocery in basement) Many other stores!
Homes, Livin and Ave are departments stores that you can drive to along Route 16. D2 is a similar store located along Route 134. (From base, turn left out of Main Gate and travel along Route 16. When you see Red Lobster, turn right at a light onto Route 134). Each of these stores has a variety of home items you may need. Livin also sells clothing.
