Yamagata Network’s Activity Report & Objective ~Part35

 ~From the blog of 27th November of the Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage~


19th November, Tohoku University of Community Service and Science in Sakata City started to carry out the cleaning operation for damaged historical materials. Welcome to new fellows!

Last week, I visited the devastated area (Ishinomaki City) for the first time in a month, with the members of the Network for Preserving Historical Materials in each area. It wrung my heart to see the photos with friends which was taken here in olden days, because the site of the photo had been entirely bulldozed. I strongly feel our brushes and pallets, used in the cleaning operations, have a very little power in resisting the force of such destruction which flooded the houses and cars. However, we have to continue our operation.
