Yamagata Network’s Activity Report and Objective ~Part13

~From the blog of Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage~

About our activity as from June 19th

Introduction

Today it was heavy rain in Yamagata today too. In the devastated area, the rainy season has come and we are concerned about it. As I inform you below, the rescue activity has been newly progressed into various directions. We appreciate you to support and cooperate with us hereafter.

Before we go further, I have to apologise to the members of the Yamagata Network. On June 25th, the Fukushima Network for Preserving Historical Materials carried out the rescue operation of the archaeological artefacts in Iidate Village which has been designated as the Planned Evacuation Zone due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. Some members of the secretariat office and the others participated in this activity due to the necessities to have a meeting for another matter and to exchange information. We didn’t previously announce about this rescue operation in Iidate because it was an urgent activity, moreover, we couldn’t grasp the circumstances there and the extent of the radiation influence. It is still uncertain how to carry out the rescue operation under such conditions. Although we would like to share information with you as much as possible, please excuse us if we can’t do that about the delicate or urgent matters. At any rate, after settling the matter temporarily, we will come out the issue and will discuss about them.
