"The title "TT" coincides with the initials of the Tokyo Tower.

We were able to reach an agreement so as to create a joint 'boom up,'" the company explained.

"We're grateful for receiving such meaningful and huge gift. We will work hard to become a shining TWICE just like the brimming Tokyo Tower," members said.
