From Japan: Shibuya’s Tokyu Hands department store

There’s a department store in Japan called Tokyu Hands which started out as a hobbies and crafts store, but now it has something for anyone who likes doing creative things. In the Shibuya neighborhood of Tokyo, the Tokyu Hands store has the most amazing cycling section I’ve ever seen. Next to a display case of Dura Ace 7800, they have a shelf full of anodized track handlebars, racks of leather toe straps, bags of powdercoated spokes. This is a store that also has everything from calligraphy to model trains. You could easily kill 2 hrs shopping here and still miss a floor of interesting things.
