“Toranomon Hills,” scheduled to open on June 11, introduced its official character named Toranomon.
The concept of the new facility developed by Mori Building is “Hello, Mirai Tokyo!” symbolizing the start of Tokyo’s future.
The character represents the role of the new facility of bringing great success for Tokyo. Toranomon was created with the help of Fujiko F. Fujio Productions, the reason for the striking resemblance to the world-popular Doraemon. He is a cat-like robot that came from the future (22nd century) to help create innovative ideas.
Toranomon has a white body and wears a collar with a golden bell. The stripes on his body are imaged after the facility’s logo, which was created using the kanji “mon” (門) meaning gate.
