The GSFS logo depicts a “tree of knowledge” inspired by our campus’ location in Kashiwa, which means “oak tree.” Its blue and gold coloring is the same as that used in the University of Tokyo logo. The gold leaves represent mature leaves that have taken on their autumnal tint, while the blue leaves radiating from the center represent fresh new leaves. The image of branches spreading outward symbolizes our graduate school’s pursuit of growth toward new horizons of knowledge, and our network linking a diverse array of disciplines. As exemplified by kashiwa-mochi (rice cakes wrapped in oak leaves), oak trees have long been considered a symbol of good luck in Japan because they do not lose their old leaves until the new ones come out. In the same way, the logo encapsulates the hope that our lineage of knowledge will remain unbroken as it passed on to new generations of scholars.
