Here, wishes come true.
Someone's suffering, hopes, and sadness blend into this city.
It's like a dream we can see together.
We connect the threads of hearts and spin them to create a transparent cocoon of dreams.
KAMITSUBAKI City is a virtual city made of such people's thoughts and feelings. Five witches live in this city, but no one knows; it is our secret.
The girls' voices make the soul quiver. They awaken the power of feelings, which had decayed away.
That is why it's called magic.
Whether or not this world can be revived is up to the five young witches and you, the observer.
Let the story begin.
MUSIC, ART, STORY, EXPERIENCE.
Music and stories, the possibilities of the virtual and real.
We're taking co-creating to the next stage.
At KAMITSUBAKI STUDIO, we have researched and developed the future of IPs and entertainment by nurturing artists and creating original stories. Our stories derived from music continue to expand alongside our co-creators.
Music and stories, the possibilities of the virtual and real. We're starting a new project, KAMITSUBAKI VERSE PROJECT, to bring the next chapter to life.
We're taking co-creating to the next stage.
At KAMITSUBAKI STUDIO, we've continued to tackle diverse creators and artists' cutting-edge XR expression (the merge of the virtual and real) based on original IP projects.
To challenge the unknown frontier of Web3 entertainment, the KAMITSUBAKI PROJECT will combine the Web3 experience—making new co-created experiences—with the various activities we've accumulated thus far.
The KAMITSUBAKI VERSE PROJECT is an endeavor to combine the Web3 experience—making new co-created experiences—with a variety of original IP projects we at KAMITSUBAKI STUDIO have developed to create entertainment in the unknown field of Web3. First, we will develop KAMITSUBAKI Resident Genesis, our digital identity for the virtual city of KAMITSUBAKI City, and a metaverse that'll materialize KAMITSUBAKI City.
KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction is an original IP project that we developed. It started in 2019, and by 2021, we started our first "story," KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction EMERGENCE, a co-creative community adventure. Despite being a one-month-only project, it became a phenomenon in which over 20,000 users took part. The stories surrounding KAMITSUBAKI City diverged to more worlds, and we continue to evolve it as a unique IP project.
At KAMITSUBAKI STUDIO, we manage new-generation artists as a creative label with a gathering of ingenious young talents. KAF, a virtual singer who gained attention since her debut as a unique presence, performed at Nippon Budokan in 2022, making her the first virtual singer in history to do so. We plan on not only producing artists who traverse the boundary between the real and virtual but also managing emerging artists within Web3 entertainment.
MUSIC, ART, EXPERIENCE.
From music to stories.
We will give birth to the metaverse "KAMITSUBAKI City" and a new community that will spread from there.
This is the promotional video that we're currently working on. KAMITSUBAKI City is a virtual city based on the world born from our original story, KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction. We're constantly testing with reproducing virtual spaces with various atmospheres and cultures, such as the central Area-0 and other cities that expand from it like petals: Area-1, Area-2, Area-3, Area-4, Area-5, and Area-6.
KAMITSUBAKI Resident Genesis is a generative NFT art*1 that indicates the identity of a resident of KAMITSUBAKI City*2. Each art has one-of-a-kind visuals and value; it is a valid ID and proof of residence of KAMITSUBAKI City. By obtaining KAMITSUBAKI Resident Genesis, one could participate in the world of stories surrounding KAMITSUBAKI City and a wide array of projects developed by KAMITSUBAKI VERSE PROJECT.
PALOW., the illustrator who does many creative works like the character design of KAMITSUBAKI STUDIO virtual singers KAF and RIM and the main visuals of KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction, is part of creating the art for this.

In 2019, we started the production of KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction, our original IP project. To manifest the theme, "from music to stories," we started the co-creative community adventure, KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction EMERGENCE, as a proposal for a new way of playing in the age of covid. The concept is: "a world where we're connected even if we're far away." After many co-creators communicated with each other, KAMITSUBAKI City Under Construction EMERGENCE, which emerged as a user-participatory architecture, developed into a community that generated wisdom in numbers. We were able to redefine the relationships between co-creators in entertainment.
Music and stories, the borderless possibilities of the virtual and real. To bring the next chapter of possibilities to life, we are starting a new project, KAMITSUBAKI VERSE PROJECT. We're going to challenge ourselves to create Web3 entertainment that no one has ever made by combining the original IP projects we've built thus far with the Web3 experience.
With KAMITSUBAKI DAO*, a co-creative community of a new nature, as the jumping pad, we released developing the metaverse for the virtual city of KAMITSUBAKI City and KAMITSUBAKI Resident Genesis (generative NFT art), which will be the proof of one's digital identity.
*KAMITSUBAKI VERSE PROJECT is the name of our many projects that aim to create Web3 entertainment.
