NHK announced that they will publish a song entitled “Hana wa Saku [trans: Flowers are Blooming], composed by Kanno, with lyrics by Shunji Iwai. As many would remember, a strong earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan last year, and affected the home town of our dear Yoko Kanno. They will be publishing this song as the first year commemoration of the earthquake, and the proceeds of the song will go to the rehabilitation of the affected areas. Shunji Iwai is also from the Miyagi Prefecture.
