YOSHIKI has donated 10 million yen (converted to euros we speak of almost € 84.000) to Japan’s Chiba prefecture which suffered a devastating blow from Typhoon Faxai on 10 September 10 2019.
YOSHIKI posted his personal message on Twitter after the disaster. “I’m in America now, and I just became aware that my hometown of Tateyama was hit, along with the entire Chiba prefecture, by a typhoon causing massive amounts of damage. I’m very concerned, and I’m praying for a fast recovery.”

YOSHIKI made the donation to the Japanese Red Cross Society through his nonprofit organisation Yoshiki Foundation America. Last month, YOSHIKI donated $100,000 (around € 90.000) to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance to combat Amazon forest fires and 10 million yen to support victims and survivors of the Kyoto Animation fire.
The internationally renowned Japanese rock star has lived in Los Angeles for over 20 years, but still holds a strong affection for his home country. “I’ve been working abroad for many years, but my feelings for my hometown have not changed. I’m sorry this is all that I can do. Please allow me to lend what little help I can offer by making this heartfelt donation. I am praying for your recovery with all my heart.”
