札 (fuda) or タッグ (tag-gu)

Fuda is the word for tag and is used in many different fields. One typical usage is 'Aka-Fuda' which literally means 'Red-tag' and signifies bargain sales or marked down prices.
But in trend concious fields - especially in fashion - the Japanized version of the English word is often used nowadays. It would be pronounded 'Tag-gu' with the Tag sounding closer to 'Tug'. Both characters are on top. Hope that helped.
