Translated from Japanese by

The cultural assets that are now transmitted are protected by the restoration and preservation technology of the time, and have been through the damage caused by deterioration and natural disasters for a long time.
 However, it is not easy to endure for a longer time and to inherit cultural properties for the next generation. At the Izumiya Hakukokan Branch in Tokyo, we will exhibit about 50 paintings and crafts, including national treasures and heavy sentences that have been repaired in recent years by traditional technology and state-of-the-art science, and introduce the forefront of cultural property restoration to protect beauty. It will be a great opportunity to meet the new creative techniques and the real faces of the rescreated cultural assets through repairs.
