When we go shopping in Japan, TOKYU HANDS is definitely one of our favourite go-to stops. Now, it has rebranded to a simpler and catchier brand name of HANDS since the brand started 47 years ago. The rebranding comes in the heels the brand becoming a subsidiary of CAINZ Corporation, a key operational firm in the BEISA Group.
The new name and logo better reflect the company’s commitment to its original mission of “Restoring the Hands” and to carrying on its rich history while looking forward to the future. The new tagline for HANDS is, “Inspiration starts from your hands. Excitement begins from your hands,” will bring about the desired improvement in quality of life and the establishment of a cultural way of life.
By the end of March 2024, the new corporate name and logo will be displayed in all HANDS stores, including the HANDS Singapore location. The company hoped that the adoption of the new moniker, HANDS, will lead to an increase in imaginative pursuits at home and in the wider world.
The new logo’s central “hand” image alludes to the company’s humble beginnings. It is designed to seem like a stylized version of the kanji word te (手) and its “single stroke” construction represents the original intention to preserve the past while moving forward into the future. It also retains HANDS’s signature deep green color from the past in an effort to preserve the organization’s identity.
