As part of this effort, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has established “SusHi Tech Tokyo (Sustainable High City Tech Tokyo),” which uses cutting-edge technology, diverse ideas, and digital know-how to create “new sustainable value” that overcomes common urban issues around the world. We are transmitting it to the world.

Greetings from Representative Nobuko Irie
Nobuko Irie, a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly (vice representative of the Tokyo Citizens First Association), said the following in her speech at the WebX2024 launch party.
Last year, I attended WebX2023 and was impressed by the efforts of people involved in the Web3 industry towards the world, and felt the potential for the future.
In order to meet those expectations, we strongly believe that Tokyo must become Web3’s flagship city.
“SusHi Tech Tokyo2024”, scheduled to be held in the Tokyo Bay Area, will attract more than 400 startup companies.
Under such circumstances, we believe that being able to announce “SusHi Tech NFT” will also contribute to mass adoption.
