Report on Sales Donations

The project to donate royalties from “Hana wa Saku” to the Japanese Red Cross Society through NHK Welfare Organization has come to an end at the end of March 2021 after 10 years of operation. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to those who have used this song in various ways.

In accordance with Yoko Kanno’s wishes, she will continue to donate the royalty income (including our publisher’s share of royalties) from the compositions of “Hana wa Saku(Flowers will Broom),” “Ray of Water,” and “Journey to Harmony” and the sales of the music sheets of these songs at our sheet music store directly to appropriate charitable organizations as follows.

    Yoko Kanno has decided to donate 3.2 million yen from the royalties of “Hana wa Saku”, “Ray of Water” and “Journey to Harmony” to the following organizations. Since we were only able to donate a portion of our income this year, we will carry over the rest to next year.

    Thank you very much to those who used these songs and purchased the music scores.

    All the proceeds (405,477 yen) from the sales of sheet music for “Hana wa Saku (FLOWERS WILL BLOOM)”, “Ray of Water”, and “Journey to Harmony” on this website until February 9, 2021 were donated to Musubie, an NPO that supports children’s cafeterias.

    Thank you very much to everyone who bought the sheet music.

    We hope that as many children as possible will be able to have a great meal.

    We also hope that this will help those who are running children’s cafeterias under difficult circumstances.

    Q: I understand that there is a copyright usage fee (payment to JASRAC), etc. Why do you charge the full amount of sales?

    A: I’m not good at calculations, so I decided to use the most straightforward sales amount.

    Q:Will you continue to donate to Musubie in the future?

    A:Our future donation plan is undecided.

    Q:What happens to the proceeds other than the sales of sheet music?

    A:We would like to donate it in some way, but when and where is yet to be decided.
