Is Yokohama station within walking distance from the hotel? Is Maurice city like ion next to the train station like in SG? Matsumoto kiyoshi is the one I wanted to go. Since I only have 1 free day to shop (though staying there for 3 days) I try to plan most of the shopping in the same area plus I read in the other thread that shops close early in autumn. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Should I travel to Tokyo or would Yokohama suffice?
Opening hours should have no change for malls. Just google and you'll see. Marui City Yokohama is located at the East Gate of Yokohama station. http://pkg.navitime.co.jp/0101/spot/detail?code=0000000012

You need to take a train down from your hotel.

Oh okay. I did look up the map and the station map which was really confusing hence I've come here to ask for help. It's my first time there btw. I see takashimaya further up from my hotel so I guess train is the way to go. Sorry I thought my hotel is near the station? So I gotta take a train from my hotel to the Yokohama station, right?

Your hotel (Yokohama Royal Park) is located next to a station called Minato-Mirai. Two stations away from Yokohama station. Takashimaya is located next to Yokohama station as well.

Oh that's great! Thanks so much. Should I purchase the JR pass if I'm only using it for 1 day? Transport would be provided for the other days I'm there. Is tokyu hands in the vicinity as well?

Shop shop shop!! Matsumoto kiyoshi, Muji, Uniqlo, porter bags and adidas, etc. is porter available in outlet? Will be heading to an outlet in one of the other days. I'm thinking if I should go to Tokyo. Unsure if the traveling time is long.

Do I need to exit the gantry to transfer to another line or are lines inside a station and no exit is necessary?

Using this for example..if I want to go to Tokyo Sky tree from Ueno station.

Take ginza line to asakusa station then change to asakusa line to oshiage station.
