Japan Orginal

Rising in Japan!

Rising Birds Japan (RBJ) is flying to discover hidden gems in Japan. Japanese art/manga/anime had a major influence on NFT space with almost 15% of NFT projects being inspired by Japanese culture/art. However, there is no blue-chip NFT project that originated in Japan.




RBJ will uncover this mystery with the support of the Proof community. We believe that there is Treasure hidden in Japan and we are here to uncover them all. We aim to bring Japan-based art back to moonbirds nest through RBJ curated: project name “RISE”

*Curator Leads


Our “Nakama” is our friends whom we met through web3 space sharing the RBJ vision of expanding and giving value to the Japanese community.

Everything about Rising Birds


Project: RISE

“RISE” by RBJ will give super-talented Japanese Artists and creators the opportunity to showcase their art Globally with the support of Proof / moonbirds / oddities community.

NAKAMA : Curators

We hand-selected curators leads who share the same Vision. But our curator doesn’t end there,  RBJ community members will be participating in the curation process as well!


We believe in the power of culture, community, and people. We will always give back to members who participate and share value with others. We will continue to hold IRL events throughout the years!


RBJ is all about equality. The whole reason we love web3 space is that everyone starts from ZERO. No one is above or better than others, we all start from scratch. RBJ always welcomes all people who share the same vision!
