About the Japan Heritage logo

The Japan Heritage logo was designed by Taku Sato. The red circle symbolizes Japan, and the group of thin lines that appear as a vertical lattice, spell out the word Japan Heritage. This group of lines creates a surface and expresses a shift of perspective towards a connectivity of the narratives and cultural properties that lead to Japan Heritage.
