products

Color blocked and style sorted everything. Not designer labels. All extremely cheap. Mens and womens. Nail polish displayed in 'barbie bubble baths' very cute. also selected hardware junk - globes, tiles, plastic boxes, bags of shells... etc

clientele

Hardcore secondhand/surplus addicts. lots of cute boys. [and girls]

service

Very cool check-out-chicks and staff... everyone screaming "irashaimase" competition with each other...

interior

Almost a hyper-MART. Orderly and super functional racking. A set of 10 major-league mirrorballs at the far end. Walls of silver tinsel. The changerooms are the highlight. 6 large rooms all decorated in different styles. I like the tatami room with chinese

double floor football field sized supermarket of cheap secondhand surplus clothing. lots of it imported from europe and usa. clever merchandising concept. tokyo institution. still totally insane.
