Tokyo's Largest Sporting Goods Department Store HALC

Odakyu HALC is 11 stories tall including three basements and two mezzanines. 
There are multiple passageways linking HALC and the Main Building including the Carillion Bridge, 
which spans the street by the west exit of Shinjuku Station.
There are a lot of outdoor activities to do in Japan,so it makes sense that so many high-quality Japanese brands and famous foreign outdoor brands for sale!  Especially recently, now that the weather is getting cooler and it's becoming fall, more people are hiking, following this years trekking trend.

We picked three most popular outdoor wear brands for a perfect hiking trip!

❶ The North Face +
There's a joke saying a sure way to spot an American tourist is if they're wearing a North Face jacket!
We love our North Face! Even President Obama does!

The items sold at The North Face are different in every country. The jackets sold at The North Face +  are heavy duty just and tailor cut, but there's something special about their new item that can protect you for any weather occasion!

❷ Columbia 
Also a well known and famous brand, Columbia changed the image of sports apparel into a design 
that is fun to wear in everyday and fashion-oriented outdoor fashion. 
We picked up some great Colombian products that are climbing wear but also casual!

It may not be very well know, 
but Aigle is a French textile company that was founded in 1853! 

AIGLE is particularly famous for their natural rubber boots.
They are still to this day handmaid, so you can expect each pair to be special and original in their own way.
You can expect them to last a long time and be very comfortable to wear.
