From the blog of the Yamagata Relief Network for Cultural Heritage
We have received information about the damage to cultural properties in Yonezawa City, Yamagata Prefecture. This is the rough report of their present condition as of now.
As for the damage to the cultural properties in Yamagata Prefecture:
These days, we cannot get enough petrol, the weather was bad this weekend and extraordinarily cold even for March, so our research was inadequate. We discussed about it in the meeting on 26th March.
Our activity is based on volunteer work, so what we can do is limited, however, we would like you to give us information about your areas it might be useful to confirm the damage even if it is only a tiny matter.
We appreciate your cooperation.
