Japanese railway operator logo collection

Looking at the "Metro Meme" thread (seems dead now) on SkyscraperPage forum, I thought it may be cool to collect logo symbols of Japanese railway operators. (So we have another imitate-Europeans page here!)

Notes:
- This collection is far from, and not meant to be, complete. Now the collection is almost complete!
- Only currently operating companies are listed here.
- Some operators have more than one logo/symbol. I listed just one for each.
- I do not guarantee any accuracy of the data. Some are my tentative drawings.

Legends:
Conventional public transit railway Subway / Underground Monorail, people mover Streetcar / Tram Funicular, trolleybus Freight railway
