NHK Welfare Award

Kumiko Takagi and Yu san shared the NHK Welfare award for an essay written about the process of making a song "Hazy Moonlight".


Yusan is Kumiko's friend, who is an ALS patient. First, Kumiko started to write the song to encourage her.  However, through writing the song together, soon they found it as if they were conveying messages toward people struggling similarly in a tough situation.


Chiaki Arisaka was invited and sang the song in the award ceremony.
