Hi, I am Kyagi, an NFT collector.

While we are all thrilled and excited by the daily updates of TAG’s progress, but I have a few questions, as follows…

  • What is TAG?
  • Is NFT interesting?

I guess many people have not yet heard of TAG or have not been following the information about TAG on social media.

For those who are considering to purchase TAG’s NFTs, I have summarized current and updated information as simply and as clearly as possible.

What is TAG?

TAG is an abbreviation of “Tokyo Alternative Girls (トウキョウ・オルタナティブ・ガール)”, an NFT project from Japan.

“Alternative” is a word that means “new and unconventional,” and this is a completely new type of Japanese NFT generative collection.

10,000 NFTs as authentication keys to participate in musical events in both real life and the metaverse were sold out on Nov. 5.

On the first day of sales, TAG achieved following 2 points in the global market of OpenSea.

  • Trend #1
  • Total Volume #2

✓ NFTs Total Supply: 10000
✓ Mint Date: November 5, 2022 (19:00 JST)

TAG’s trading volume has continued to grow steadily since then, and ranked 10th at total trading volume in Japan, on current as of Dec. 2022.

Tweet Translation:

“NFT total volume ranking in Japan.

The vision of TAG for the future

The word “TAG” is also included the meaning and plays with the idea of “tag-teaming”, sharing efforts as a team to collectively win.

Benefits of Holding: An admission pass for Web3 Live music club, exclusive livestreaming of a live music club event at Shibuya, and much more!

TAG aims to create the content that creators and members can work together as “TAG-Team” (TAG).

Here are their 3 future plans considering that…

1. Proposing new ways to enjoy the music and entertainment world
2. Forming deep bonds with other NFT projects
3. Regional revitalization through cross-industry collaboration

1. Proposing new ways to enjoy the music and entertainment world

TAG proposes new ways to enjoy live music concerts, for further enjoying the world of Web3.

STEP1: They created a partnership with a live music club owned by Victor in Shibuya called Veats Shibuya. There set 4 cameras for music performance, and viewers can freely switch between those cameras while they are viewing contents.

STEP2: They will set up a virtual live music club in “Shibuya 5G” metaverse. and will run various events there.

Ryota Katou (Composer) Music Collaboration with Nakata Atsuhiko

STEP3: Ryota Katou, Vocaloid Producer, will create the music for them

STEP4: Romako Nonoshiri, as a rising star in NFT field, will work for recording of thier music.

*These plans have possiblities to be changed depending on the progress.

2. Forming deep bonds with other NFT projects

They distributed AL (Allow List, priority purchase rights) to mainly Japanese projects.

The purpose why they are going with this way is to boost the domestic NFT field by supporting each other’s projects.

AL Distribution Results

SchoolData, AsterPrince, SHOOT!WORLD, KAGURA, Shikibu World, and many others…

They will continue to support and collaborate with legitimate projects as best seen fit.

3. Regional revitalization through cross-industry collaboration

TAG is trying to realize “NFT x Regional Revitalization” by collaborating not only with the Web3 world (NFTs, blockchain, crypto), but also with other industries.

- Pork can be bought for cheap! Discount at GIFTON SHOP

- Oysters can be bought for cheap! Discount at Kaki Wakate-no-Kai

- Vegetables can be bought for cheap! The Vegetable Collaboration with Tomajo

The sales webpage will be published separately (coming soon).

And other collaborations with projects for agricultural products, sake, beer, etc. is under consideration.

Please stay tuned for TAG Discounts by just holding TAG NFTs.

It’s a comfortable and friendly community that has right space between founders and TAG holders (a.k.a. TAG友, TAG Tomo[friends]).

Note: There might be in endless conversations about shrimp fried rice or ramen noodles only, when you join Twitter Space.

3 Activities to enjoy with TAG

3. Get Roles (Continued)

The TAG Discord has lots of roles, some of the most I’ve ever seen.

There are various roles, from meaningful ones to completely meaningless ones (^_-)-☆. “Screw Around Seriously”, remember?

The probability for winning AL/WL of other projects will be increased depending on each role. Note that Roles do stack and the winning multipliers are increased with the more roles you own, unless specified otherwise.


As of Dec. 1, 2022, the probabilities for your odds of winning have increased from 3x up to about 80x!
(And it could increase more in the future)

You can get the TAG Member role by purchasing 3 TAG NFTs.


To enable each role, you have to make Metamask verification it with Distributed Wallet(ウォレット接続くん) after purchasing NFTs.

Some roles give other benefits, such as attendance to TAG strategy meetings or priority participation in future music events.

It has great potential for more utilities in the future, so the more NFTs you have, the more you can enjoy.


If you become a premium member of Nanataku’s TAG Podcast at Voicy, you can get a SHAZNA role that gives 10x odds of winning at AL(Allow List) giveaway!

Tweet Translation:

“Good morning! I’ve always streamed Twitter Space twice a day, morning and night, but I’ve finally started Voicy, so Twitter Space will be only night.
I will update my Voicy channel every morning, so please listen those!

TAG is the NFT-Passport that works with real life —
