YOSHIKI (X JAPAN) has donated 10 million JPY (approximately $90,499 USD) to support victims of the Kumamoto earthquake. This donation was made by his nonprofit foundation Yoshiki Foundation America.
YOSHIKI, who was in Japan at the time of the disaster, was disheartened by the amount of damage caused by the earthquake. He wanted to do something for the victims, so he donated 10 million JPY to Japanese Red Cross' Kumamoto Earthquake Relief Fund.
"As with the time of the Tohoku Earthquake, I am impressed at how orderly the disaster stricken areas are and also how composed the victims are. I want to continue to show the world this Japanese spirit, which has been admired worldwide," he expressed.
