Pyong's comments:  I guess you know the most famous secondhand book store in Japan called "BOOK OFF". As you can easily guess, MODE OFF is a clothing store brand of them although the shop rarely sell MODE brand items. Similar to BOOK OFF, the biggest advantage of MODE OFF is the price. You can find items from JPY 100. If you have enough time and power to browse for a nice one, MODE OFF should be the first option. The store is located in the end of vigorous street in Ueno filled with many shops and people. The next street is called AMEYOKO which is one of the most famous market street in Tokyo where you can find traditional Japanese food. The popular sightseeing town Akihabara is also close to this town, around 15 min. by walk. I'm sure that you can spend the whole day in this area.
