On April 28th, the auction for X-Japan leader YOSHIKI’s crystal piano ended with a winning bid of 11 million and 1000 yen.
The Yahoo! Japan auction for Yoshiki’s crystal piano started on April 17th. At one point, a bid of 6 billion yen was made, however the bidder did not seem to show signs of making the payment, thus the auction was restarted. This time, if the winning bidder does not follow through with payment, the piano will automatically go to the second highest bidder.
Money generated from this auction will be donated to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.
