If you (like this writer) can’t work out why everyone is queueing up to get pizza or a hotdog served in a cardboard box, eaten outside in the blazing sun or the freezing cold next to the main entrance, then you are in luck. Costco Shinmisato is right next to Lalaport Shinmisato—a giant mall with a foodcourt and restaurants. It’s also 5 minutes walk from the Shinmisato branch of Ikea, so you can always grab some Swedish Meatballs instead.

A car is not necessary to visit Costco. Costco Shinmisato is about 13 minutes walk from Shin-Misato Station on the Musashino Line. If your shopping is too much to cart home, you can request for it to be delivered to your door.
