[book] YOSHIKI's Book to Be Published in Multiple Languages

2009-06-27
X JAPAN

YOSHIKI, leader of the rock band X JAPAN, made a snap visit to SHIBUYA TSUTAYA in Shibuya, Tokyo. His autobiography ‘YOSHIKI/佳樹'(published by Kadokawa Shoten) sold over 200,000 copies, and YOSHIKI himself asked for the mini-event to be held to celebrate. The shop became packed with 500 fans, and YOSHIKI commented “I'm very fortunate to have such fans.” He then announced that an X JAPAN film concert will be held in August at Suzuka Circuit in Suzuka, Mie, and that he had been offered to write the theme song for the Shanghai World Expo 2010. He also revealed that X JAPAN has been asked to perform at the Expo. The publisher Kadokawa Shoten's Executive Director Kadokawa Tsuguhiko (65) said “I will like to have the book published in as many languages as possible. We'll first start in Asia.” YOSHIKI remained upbeat throughout the visit and upon hearing Kadokawa's suggestion he countered “So we'll be going around bookstores in Asia too?”
