Logo

Our logo shows 3 traditional tops used in the game of Komamawashi, long a popular playtime activity for Japanese. In choosing their logo we wanted to illustrate that even play activities can contribute to physical and mental health in children and youth. Furthermore, the traditional activities and activities link the generations together and can be passed onto future generations. There games can also be played by all generations regardless of physical abilities. Although it is beyond the purview of the report card, we would also like to introduce traditional Japanese children’s game to the rest of the world.
