A meeting place in Nishi-Shinjuku. A symbol of Shinjuku i-LAND and its message of love.
LOVE Objet is a popular meeting place at Nishi-Shinjuku Station. It is a public artwork fronting the entrance of Shinjuku i-LAND, a skyscraper with 44 floors of offices, stores, residences and a specialty school. The famous objet, created by American artist Robert Indiana, is frequently shown on TV and is a popular meeting place for couples. It has even spawned its own subculture: one rumor says that if you can pass between the V and E without your body touching it, your romantic relationship will succeed. Shinjuku i-LAND is directly connected to Nishi-Shinjuku Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line, and an eight-minute walk from Shinjuku Station on the JR, Odakyu, Keio and Toei Shinjuku Lines.
