We created this logo by coming up with “I♥NY" inspiration. By replacing “LOVE” with “♥”, identity of LOVE was transformed to the mark itself and nowadays “I♥NY” became one fashion icon and the mark is used in lots of items such as T-shirts. We set a kiss mark as an identity of our logo and it forms new fashion. Among the people in the world, Japanese people are not good at kissing when greeting. However this reticence is one of Japanese identity and by wearing KISS,TOKYO! T-shirt, We could show our love for people and Tokyo. And always have feelings that we are proud of it. It is a wish with this logo mark.
