From the blog of the Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage
About our activities as from May 29th
This news update already numbers part 10. As of the present, we received a lot of support both physically and spiritually. We would like to express our gratitude to you. Through your support of the Yamagata Network, we got to know how great the effort which supports the devastated area truly was. The extent of this pulling together gave us relief so we have never felt any anxiety.
Because of that, we could maximise our potential. At the same time, we also recognise that we may have acted somewhat impolitely or unfairly to the people who supported us. If so we sincerely apologise to them. We expect that our activity will face a lot of difficulties henceforth, so we appreciate you to persevere with our activities for the time being.
