Haneda is the only international airport in Tokyo. Therefore, it is able to use all the positive attributes of Tokyo in its own branding. For example, the hospitality of people and shops, the modern facilities and convenience of its public amenities, its unique culture, its vibrant art and music, and its sense of tradition. All these things can be used to create a strong and powerful personality for what is usually a characterless and functional space.

The rebranding had a huge effect on internal motivation and staff pride. Rollout achieved positive feedback from all levels of TIAT employees and management. Haneda is now in a strong, positive position to welcome visitors to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The phrase “We are Tokyo” motivated and inspired employees to do more, to be more, to do better, to be authentic, original and real. The megaphone-like treatment, supported by proud personal declarations, encouraged a culture traditionally seen as reticent to step up boldly to proclaim that each employee is a brand ambassador for the city they represent.
