The W1SH RIBBON is rooted in Japan’s spiritual essence, as TOKYO SKYTREE is considered one of the most spiritual places in Tokyo. Why? Because it runs along a line of spiritually relevant and traditionally important Japanese landmarks. That line begins where the sun rises in Japan, the Kashima Shrine in Ibaraki Prefecture. Kashima Shrine is known as the ultimate site to pray to the god of victory for the strength to overcome obstacles.
Next in the line is TOKYO SKYTREE, which is between Kashima Shrine and the Imperial Palace, the main residence of the Emperor of Japan and his family.
Next is the majestic Meiji Shrine, the most popular shrine to partake in hatsumōde, the first good luck prayer of the year.
Mt. Fuji is regarded as a sacred kami, or spirit, in the Shinto religion, and many consider it an act of pilgrimage to climb its slopes. Japan’s sacred history and national identity are tied to this mountain, as it symbolizes the quest for beauty and perfection that has shaped so much of Japanese culture.
This impressive path of positivity and peace is the essence of TOKYO SKYTREE’s W1SH RIBBON spot, which builds on this line of spiritual power to spread happiness and harmony to people and our environment.
TOKYO SKYTREE donated part of the revenue from the sale of ribbons for the W1SH RIBBON project to a COVID-19 emergency support program and will continue to donate to the disaster emergency assistance (domestic and international disaster relief with a focus on medical care) of Peace Winds Japan, a certified nonprofit organization.
The total amount of donation through the W1SH RIBBON project from its launch in October 2020 to the end of March 2022 was JPY 1,952,825. The total amount of donation through the project from April 2022 to the end of March 2023 was JPY 3,461,550. Our guests’ donations are greatly appreciated. We will make efforts to continue our support activities through this project.
