Name and Logo
Mizukaze literally means fresh wind, and can also be read as a joyous wind which brings fortune. The name expresses the idea of the new Twilight Express bringing joy to beautiful Japan, the “Land of Abundance” (or Mizuho-no-kuni, an ancient name for Japan).
The logo consists of the “M”of MIZUKAZE, and resembles a mountain range, with angels from the logo of the former Twilight Express symbolizing the sweeping wind.
