"Note: Tokyu Department Store is a different department store run by the same company Tokyu Group."

Tokyu Hands Inc., known as nihongo|Tokyu Hands|東急ハンズ, is a Japanese department store. Tokyu Hands is part of the Tokyu Group, its first store opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1976. [History from [http://www.tokyu-land.co.jp/english/company/history/index.html Tokyu-land.com] ] Tokyu Hands got its start as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) store, hence the logo with 2 hands, and the emphasis on crafts and materials for projects.

In 2003, an overseas branch of Tokyu Hands, named Hands Tailung (台隆手創館) opened in Taipei, Taiwan at Breeze Center. As of 2008, Hands Tailung operates 5 stores in Taiwan.

Tokyu Hands focuses on hobby, home improvement and lifestyle products. At the Shibuya flagship store, products include toys, games, novelty items, gift cards, gift wrap, costumes, bicycles, travel products (such as luggage and camping gear), hobby materials, hardware, tools, do-it-yourself kits, pet supplies, office supplies and stationery; Japanese calligraphy, painting, drawing supplies, furniture, lighting, home appliances, and storage solutions. Tokyu Hands' appeal lies in its wide variety of goods on offer, combined with the uniqueness of goods available. You can find many goods here that are only available in Japan.

Also of note is the Ikebukuro location, which contains Nekobukuro, or "Cat's House". Some 20 cats roam free in this area, though admission is not free.

Most branches offer free workshops (in Japanese) and have demonstrations running on various floors during busy periods (weekends and holidays). There is a delivery service available for purchases that cannot be taken home on the day.
