Fans were shocked and disappointed to hear about ex. WIZARD guitarist Masumi’s stage 4 cancer diagnosis, but fans and shop owners alike are pulling out all the stops to support him in whatever way they can.
Brand X is one of the leading supporters, announcing a 1,000 paper crane project. You may know of the famous story Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, in which a girl who developed leukemia attempted to fold 1,000 paper cranes to cure her own cancer. The story and this reality is based on a legend that says one who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted a wish by the gods.
Anytime between now and April 25, you can fold paper cranes and drop it off at any of the stores or venues listed below:
(Tokyo) Takadanobaba AREA

There’s also an area set up to fold paper cranes in any of the stores (excluding the venues Takadanobaba AREA and Ikebukuro EDGE), so if you’re in Japan at this time and want to lend some support, consider stopping by.
