Project

Tokyo World Gate Akasaka

The Akasaka district in Minato Ward is an area expected to develop into one of the foremost international business and commerce districts in Tokyo. In the midst of this intensifying large-scale re-development, this richly unique neighborhood is peppered with sites where the Edo-era culture can still be felt even today, including the Akasaka Hikawa Shrine and a former feudal lord's residence. To ensure that this project contributes to Japan's development as a top tourist destination, we will provide support to strengthen the area's global competitiveness in the tourism industry by repairing and displaying Edo-style floats, establishing Japan-brand facilities to meet the needs of visitors interested in Japanese history and culture, inviting top-class hotels to host overseas guests, and pursuing other such measures.

What The Logo Represents

This logo follows the design of Tokyo World Gate Brand symbol representing “an opening gate that connects Japan to the rest of the world” and Akane color (madder red) is selected for the letters referring to “Akanezaka” which is said to be the origin of area name “Akasaka”. It reflects our hope to develop the area as a hub to accelerate growth in global business, while inheriting the local history of Akasaka.

Concept of “Tokyo World Gate Akasaka”

“Next Destination ~Meet up again in the city~”

To the city where we can contribute to society and achieve physical and mental well-being by being there.

To the city where we can be exposed to diverse culture, experience the future, and be deeply attached to.
In the post COVID-19 world, we come back to and are reunited in the city, where we rediscover “encounters, relationships and the value of the city”.
