ABOUT

The logo for the in-house space for communication (HIROSHIMA TERRACE) creates a shape similar to the torii gate of Miyajima, so it can emphasize the uniqueness of Hiroshima. And also, the reason why it uses the carp shape is that Hiroshima has long been called the city of water, and that it was also called "the city of carp" because carp lived there. Therefore, we have tried overlapping it with the image of Nishikigoi wearing the Mitsubishi colors to express both Hiroshima and Mitsubishi.
