Japanese Municipality Logos

IN JAPAN, CITY MUNICIPALITIES are identified by some of the coolest abstract logo’s I have seen in a long time. In contrast, American cities are overwhelmingly identified by interpretations of trees, the town square, fountain, or other more literal representations, like a city landmark . In Japan, it’s almost like each city has tried to outdo the other with the better abstract symbol—a colorful mark to identify their place.

These logo marks were found on Koi Koi Koi.

Thank you so much! I think this will help me solve a mystery. I have some old Japanese postcards that are stamped with designs like this and I wasn't sure what to make of them. This should help me identify where they're from...I hope.
