Tokyu Hands, like its nearest competitors Loft and Muji, is a Japanese megastore of huge contemporary popularity and influence in the Japanese retail market.
Tokyu Hands stores often take up a number of floors in large Japanese department stores or are stand alone stores in their own right. Tokyu Hands opened its first store in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1976, and was originally a DIY and hobby shop, hence the "two hands" symbol and green color of its trade mark. The main flagship store and HQ is in Shibuya with other large Tokyo stores in Ikebukuro, Shinjuku and Shinsaibashi Tokyu Hands in Osaka being the largest outside the capital. There are also 5 Tokyo Hands stores in Taiwan trading under the name of Hands Tailung.
Tokyu Hands offers a massive variety of goods focused on its core DIY, home improvement and lifestyle products. Other goods include clothing, craft items, furniture, hardware, Hello Kitty, leather goods, luggage, lighting, pet supplies, stationery, tools and toys.
