Hmm, certainly it seems no problem in this copyright....

But, README file (written in Japanese) says
  "This software is free software. No limitation for any purpose.
  You don't distribute this with "fee" without author's permission.
  See copyright about modifing and redistributing source."

I'll ask upstream author about this difference.
