2024/02/28Comment by Dr Iain Stuart after the inspection

My name is Dr. Iain Stuart. I'm an archaeologist and a historian from Australia. I work in the area of industrial heritage and I'm also President of the Royal Australian Historical Society. I've just today inspected the Industrial Heritage Information Center in Tokyo. It's wonderful. I've had a fantastic time. I've been given lots of hospitality. I really appreciate the amount of work that's gone into presenting the industrial heritage of Japan, which I've been working on since 2010 to support World Heritage Nomination. This site is really important as a way of introducing people to the sites that people can go to and visit throughout Japan. It really highlights the importance of industrial heritage and from Meiji era industrialization to the history of Japan and also to the history of the world. That's about it.
