A Programmable 60% Aluminum Board With Key Updates

Designed in Japan by Tokyo Keyboard, the Tokyo60 is a compact HHKB-style board with a sleek, seamless design. This Season 2 version features a brand-new colorway with dark gray keycaps, black legends, a yellow function key, three new case colors, and a shine-through acrylic diffuser to emphasize the lighting. Constructed with two pieces of 6000-series aluminum, the case is machined at a 5-degree angle. This angle, combined with the Cherry-profile keycaps, is optimized for an ergonomic feel. Built-into the aluminum case, the integrated top-mount plate adds even more stability. Thanks to the hot-swappable PCB, you can swap in new switches in minutes without any soldering—so feel free to try a new feel whenever you want. With a fully programmable layout and RGB lighting, the board can be customized any way you like. For more on the Happy Hacking Keyboard style, check out this interview with the creator.

Note: At checkout, you'll have your choice of CNC case anodization color, acrylic diffuser, and dye-sublimated keycaps. You can also add a set of switches. Pricing will vary depending on your selections; see checkout options for more details once the drop is live.


To allow us to start production on the order, and to ensure smooth delivery, we will be collecting payment on August 31. If this is an issue for you, please join the drop after this date.

A 60% Keyboard Done Right, With More to Come Later

The idea behind the Tokyo60 was to create a keyboard that focuses on one design, one layout, and a handful of colors, rather than offering countless combinations that can lead to complications. Everything from the feel of the case to the anodized finish to the sound of bottoming out is a reflection of the time and effort that went into the design. For this second run (Season 2), we’re offering three new case colors and the Tokyo60 Season 2 dye-subbed keycaps. In future Seasons, we’ll be expanding the offering with more colors and accessories. So stay tuned!

Programmability, Backlighting & Switches

Though it comes fully programmed (once you assemble it), the Tokyo60 can be completely reprogrammed via the QMK firmware. It also has customizable bottom-lit RGB LEDs. Thanks to the acrylic diffuser, the Season 2 version allows you to see the LEDs on full display, as opposed to the subtle glow on the last round. You can position the acrylic diffuser on the bottom or sandwich it between the aluminum pieces, depending on your style. What’s more, at checkout, you’ll be able to add a wide range of switches to get just the feel you want.
