Canon aids relief efforts following heavy rains in eastern and northern Japan

TOKYO, September 16, 2015—Torrential rainfall in early September brought about by Typhoon Etau caused widespread damage throughout eastern and northern Japan. We at Canon would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by this disaster and our thoughts go out to those suffering in its aftermath.

While we realize that the road to recovery will be challenging and time-consuming, we hope that the region will soon be able to begin the rebuilding and healing process.

To aid in the relief efforts for the flood victims, the Canon Group is making a donation of 5 million yen (approximately US$41,700) to the Central Community Chest of Japan.
