On July 5th (Thu), I attended the 7th Annual Meeting of Japanese Liaison Council of History and Folk Museums (URL: just only in Japanese) held at Osaka Museum of History, and on July 7th (Sat) and 8th (Sun), joined in the 35th Meeting of Japan Society for Scientific Studies on Cultural Properties (URL: just only in Japanese) conducted at Nara Women's University.

I joined in the meeting of Japanese Liaison Council of History and Folk Museums as our museum works, and we discussed about many matters together with people of history and folk museums. As our museum project, Integrated Studies of Cultural and Research Resources (ISCRR), we presented a poster about ISCRR’s information infrastructure ‘Knowledgebase of Historical Resources in Institutes (khirin)’ (URL: just only in Japanese).












At the 35th Meeting of Japan Society for Scientific Studies on Cultural Properties, I conducted my own oral presentation about analysing historical papers in the early-modern period, and as other presentations for our cooperative research project, we conducted an oral presentation about surveys at the Kamuitapukopushita site in Date city, Hokkaido, and a poster presentation about analysis of field crops.
