Tokyu Hands, operated by Tokyu Group, is a hobby and crafts chain similar to LOFT, though Tokyu Hand's selection has a greater emphasis on function and DIY. Tokyu has been responsible for several consumer booms in the past, including functional bags, silver accessories, and magic trick booms. Plan to spend a day cruising the large array of DIY and hobby related products. TH Ikebukuro is one of the largest, and without exageration, it sells almost anything you can and cannot imagine.

  • Tokyu Hands: Shibuya
  • (2010-10-23)
  • A large store that has products ranging from sporting goods to bathroom toiletries. If you have looked everywhere for something in particular then this should be your final destination. It is always extremely crowded here so either be prepared to walk up and down the many sets of stairs or wait in line for the next available elevator. Also, don't forget to receive your customer point card on th... Read More

  • I liked this Tokyu Hands. They had a lot of the same products as their counterpart as well as a few other treats I hadn't noticed before. If you're looking for anything at all, Tokyu Hands will probably have it. I really liked their costume section, which was fun. If I wanted to fit a full sized costume into my luggage to take home for Halloween I would have, but I never have enough room with ... Read More

  • I always find myself walking around in circles in this store. Each time I go I find myself seeing something new, nothing is ever the same in there. It's the best place to find really odd items you'd think you couldn't find or hard to find items; especially if it's something DIY. Coming out of this store with at least a bag full of things really tells you something. I never leave without purcha... Read More

  • this place has gone up in my esteem lately. this is actually the only place i've seen the pretty unique postcard of rubbery fish, but sadly, the price of that fish was 400 yen, i think. anyways, whenever anyone asks me where they think they can get something or other item, i always refer to tokyu hands, because, almost really, that place has everything. the floor arrangement is confusion to the... Read More

  • It's always fun to browse through Tokyu Hands to see what new products they have. But whenever I go with a purpose I always feel like this location is out of the way. First, you have to figure out the best route from Shinjuku station to the Takashimaya building, then when your in the building you need to venture into the furthest corner. Despite this slight inconvenience, their products are f... Read More

  • Tokyu Hands has everything I've ever needed for any of the creative projects i've ever done in Tokyo. Other than being more expensive than the giant Home centers in the suburbs, this place can't be beat. If you are interested in painting, paper, leather, metalwork, glass blowing or even fibreglass, this place can supply everything you need. In addition to being really great for creative people,... Read More

  • A great department store with a little bit of everything, Tokyu Hands is a great place to start looking for anything you might need if you don't know where to get it. It is particularly good for DIYers, but has an extensive selection of items for home decor and furnishings, traditional Japanese collectibles and gifts for friends back home, and a fantastic "seasonal" section for Halloween costumes... Read More

  • Tokyu Hands: Shinjuku
  • (2008-03-10)
  • Do you need a full sized eggplant body suit? How about some furoshiki (Japanese cloth wrappings) or cute sugar treats? Or maybe just some really nice stationary or stickers? Tokyo Hands has all of this and more. My favorite sections of Tokyo Hands were the costumes and the stationary. They had so many strange costumes such as eggplant, daikon (Japanese raddish), bunnies, power ranger, and mor... Read More

  • Tokyu Hands: Shibuya

  • Tokyu Hands literally has a little bit of everything, and the combination is very refreshing. While they quite possibly have everything, this department store is far from the Wal-mart-esqu conception of "everything." Tokyu Hands has quality products and things that are actually desirable. You'll be able to find characteristic Japanese accouterments such as cell phone straps and miniature figurines... Read More

  • Tokyu Hands Shinjuku is the biggest department store I've been to, and it was a little intimidating. Japanese department stores have more selection that American ones - this Tokyu Hands was REI, Wal-mart, and Bed, Bath & Beyond combined. I was particularly impressed with the extensive outdoor gear, which is quite rare in Japan - bicycles, hiking gear, etc. Also, in the home section the assortment... Read More
