The reason I have no money
Sports depo is a sports shop which sells any thing and everything relating to sports. This includes sports wear for men, women and children; shoes- from trainers to football boots, caps, underwear, engraved football shorts etc.
Additionally, it has the best range of vitamins, supplements, and proteins that I have seen from any Japanese store.
What is brilliant about the shops is the dedicated sections to each sport, brand and item. Want free weights? Go to the gym accessories section. Want a hiking pole? Go to hiking etc.
Additionally, the staff are always friendly and seem to be knowledgeable and simply know what their talking about.
But, you may be thinking, is the downside to such a wonderland of sporting wear and gear? Simply put, the price.
While the shop has items on sale and frequent offers online,any items are full retail price and they soon mount up. But there are very good prices on offer here, but you need to be careful- like everywhere else in Japan.
Final thoughts, would I recommend it? Definitely, I love the range of, well, everything they have. Just be careful of not buying into the ‘it’s cheap for Japan’ trap.
Thank you for reading and happy exploring.
