First Uniform Change since the Grand Opening! New Uniforms

New Uniforms Will Be Worn at Tokyo Skytree!
In preparation for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, staff uniforms will be revamped and staff will welcome domestic and international guests with Japanese “omotenashi!”
It was decided that the Bunka Fashion College (established 97 years ago), Japan’s first fashion college with a rich history and achievements, would design the uniforms. Within Bunka Fashion College, a competition was held, and Megumi Higashiyama’s design stood out amongst the others.
※Staff will wear the new uniforms starting from October 1, 2020.

Design Concept:
Traditional Modern

The uniforms are based on “Old Japan” and “New Japan,” using both traditional and modern colors as well as patterns.
The textile design is based off of the traditional Japanese pattern designed off of hemp leaves called “Asa no ha” and it is designed in a triangular way much like Tokyo Skytree. As the hemp leaves grow strong and tall quickly, it is said to bring good luck to the growth of healthy children. This design was chosen with the wish that Tokyo Skytree would continue to develop and prosper.

Utilizing the colors sky blue and “sakura” pink, this uniform is designed to make a nice and welcoming impression on guests.

Information Staff

The suit jacket is based off of a kimono with lining along the collar. To show the soft impression that comes from the kimono, the shawl collar was chosen as it has gentle curves. The suit jacket and skirt are both designed like a kimono, with the right side tucked under the left.

Fast Skytree Ticket Counter Staff
(Ticket Counter for International Visitors)

The uniform is designed to be well-shaped with calm colors. The suit jacket is based off of a kimono with lining along the collar. The color red was chosen for the lining as it is symbolic of Japan. The skirt is based off of Japanese “origami” shown through the asymmetry and pleating, making it a fashionable look.

THE SKYTREE SHOP Staff

This uniform utilizes the color indigo and gives a calm impression so that the goods in the shop stand out. The shirt is longer in the back as this allows for staff to move easily, while providing a nice silhouette image. Although the silhouette may appear simple, the shirt is designed with the “Asa no ha” (hemp leaves) design, while having a modern look.

Along with the new uniform designs for staff, Tokyo Skytree’s official mascot, Sorakara Chan, has a new dress designed with the “Asa no ha” (hemp leaves) design. The colors light blue and yellow are utilized in this gorgeous dress; colors that are representative of Sorakara Chan. Sorakara Chan will wear this dress when greeting guests from October 1, 2020.
