About Our Logo
Mitasai, marking its milestone this November, the logo expresses our pride and esteem towards our long history, while reflecting our determination to constantly seek for innovation.
Red symbolizes “tradition”, for it is the color of the Japanese happi coat (a uniform usually worn at Japanese traditional festivals or matsuri), as well as a key color of Keio University’s tricolored flag. Turquoise blue symbolizes “innovation”, as it illustrates the energy and freshness of youth.
The two circles form the number 60, and one may notice that the shadows form the kanji character for three (三 -san-), which represents “Mita” (三田). The logo as a whole seems as though it is soaring upwards, indicating our mission to never fear change and constantly progress.
The bulky round structure depicts the vibrant, cheerful atmosphere of Japanese school festivals.
