Yamagata Network’s Activity Report & Objective ~Part 31

~From the blog of 30th October of the Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage~

Introduction

Last week we received a message from Rikuzentakada City, which told us of their idea of how to return their damaged material that we had finished cleaning. After that, we had a meeting for discussing the method of tidying the photos damaged in Rikuzentakada City. As we advertise below, historical or folk-cultural study societies have a series of reports presenting the rescue operation. Our preservation operation also goes on and on.

When it comes to the secretariat office’s plan, we try to finish the cleaning operation and send them to the vacuum dry machine as often as we possibly can, and would like to start preserving the materials which are waiting in refrigeration. Our operation is now reaching the best part. On the other hand, due to the cold weather, currently we are holding the cleaning operation indoors, and it causes a fall in the number of drop-in participants, although those people had become our new fellows. We sincerely hope many people will come and join us. Our operation seems endless so far.
