Yamagata Network’s Activity Report & Objective ~Part 33

~From the blog of 14th November of the Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage~


I am very sorry there was once again a delay in sending this report. I would like to keep engaging in our work.

The season has been getting colder, and been getting closer to the same temperature on the day of the East Japan Earthquake. Last Saturday, 8 months have passed since 11th March. It is just a private concern though, recently I feel that the time lag between my own ticking watch and the stopped watches of the sufferers has been growing further apart over little by little. That is to say, we keep going forward, but they cannot.

However, in reality, time equally flows among us. We should steadily progress and engage in the cleaning operations for the damaged historical materials under our protection. We are now carrying out these in haste. Please come and join us.

[Last Week’s Activity Report]

  1. 7th November, we held the cleaning operation in Yamagata University.
  2. 7th November, the members of YWJC visited TUAD and looked at the exhibition of ‘the rescue operation for affected libraries ~preserve, pass down, and relate together~’. They also looked around the work place for the cleaning operation in TUAD.
  3. 8th November, we carried out the cleaning operation in TUAD.
  4. 11th November, the Yamagata Network held the Imoni Festival in YWJC.

[This Week’s Objective]

  1. 14th November, we will carry out the cleaning operation in Yamagata University.
  2. 15th and 17th of November, the cleaning operation in TUAD will be held. On 17th, we will have a regular meeting there.
  3. 18th November, the cleaning operation will be done in YWJC.
  4. 19th November, we will have a survey to assess the present condition of the private whitewashed warehouse in Shonaicho.


Currently, in the Ueyama Castle in Ueyamacho, the panel exhibition which introduces the Yamagata Network’s activity is on display. It will finish at the end of November, so if you visit that area, please look around the exhibition.
