On March 11th Japan local time, X Japan’s leader Yoshiki donated his premier special edition of signature TAMA drum set for a charity auction to commemorate Japan’s 5 year memorial of the Great East Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. (*see below for details)

The drum set will include Yoshiki’s autographed signature drum sticks. If the winner resides in Japan and is able to pick up the item in Tokyo, Yoshiki will personally hand them over to the winner and they will be granted a photo op with Yoshiki.

This charity auction is presented by Yoshiki Foundation America, a 501(c)(3) organization and will be hosted by Yahoo Auction Japan. The online auction will kick off around noon, Monday, March 14th Japan time and end around 11PM on March 21st Japan local time. This auction is open to worldwide users and the entire proceeds from the final bid will be donated to Japan Red Cross for the Great East Japan Earthquake relief fund.

X JAPAN and Yoshiki have continuously done charitable work, including donating musical instruments and helping build music rooms for children affected by the Kobe Earthquake in 1995, the 2009 Sichuan earthquake in China, and many more. Yoshiki put his own favorite “crystal” piano up for auction in 2011, as well as donating X Japan’s entire performance fee at one of Japan’s biggest summer festivals a-nation to help provide aid for the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami. Most recently in 2015, X Japan kicked off their Japan Tour in a club size venue in Ishinomaki City, a city that was most severely affected by the 3.11 disaster where they held a charity concert performing to a very small crowd of 150 people. 75 tickets were gifted to the selected local fans and the remaining tickets were auctioned off on a charity auction site, raising 28 million JPY. Proceeds were donated to Central Community Chest of Japan to help aid the children in need who were affected by the disaster.

X JAPAN recently announced a suspension of their current performance commitments due to band member Pata’s sudden illness.
