TOKYO—Stylish men in this city have another spot to add to their shopping itinerary.

This Saturday, Hankyu will open a new men's department store in Tokyo's Yurakucho district, replicating the concept of a similar store in Osaka.

The nine-story complex will be divided into sections for luggage and leather goods, casual wear, formal wear, hair and body care, and accessories. The store will stock products by both big-name and up-and-coming designers from Japan and around the world. These names include Tom Ford, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Y3, Ralph Lauren and Alexander McQueen.

The store will also feature salons where customers can buy rare and one-of-a-kind items or to breathe new life into an old piece through tailoring or customization services.

Grooming fanatics can make their way to the eighth floor where there is a nail salon, spa, foot care salon and an Aveda hair salon.

Monocle magazine editor-in-chief Tyler Brûlé also had a hand in the project as a Monocle Shop and the brand's first café' make their home in the basement level of the store.
