- About the name and logo
- The name “Plat Tsukiji” was decided through a public call for suggestions. “Plat” has two meanings—a “base (platform) for disseminating information” and “visiting Tsukiji casually (“puratto” in Japanese).” The logo that was chosen combines the “P” from “Plat” with the first Japanese character for “tsu” (ツ) in Tsukiji in the style of a traditional Japanese family crest. It symbolizes history and familiarity.
