In 2009, when the City of Yokohama commemorated the 150th year of the Port opening ,we had activities (IMAGINE YOKOHAMA) among Yokohama citizens to talk about the future City of Yokohama and draw its image.
Based upon the thoughts of Yokohama citizens ,the statement which describes 'the future image of the City of Yokohama' was made and the slogan and logo mark that symbolize that statement were created.
We would like Yokohama citizens to share them and to use them in various situations. We will also utilize them to communicate inside and outside Japan.

The place where a wide variety of people and things meet and intersect.
Movement is given to the mark by using three different blues which are colors symbolic of 'the City of Yokohama'.
