Tokyu Hands Inc., known as Tokyu Hands (東急ハンズ, Tōkyū Hanzu), is a Japanese department store. Tokyu Hands is part of the Tokyu Group, its first store opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1976. 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 2000, an overseas branch of Tokyu Hands, named Hands Tailung (台隆手創館) opened in Taipei, Taiwan, in the Ximending area. As of 2013, Hands Tailung operates 12 stores in Taiwan.
