A report on conservation activities for FY2018 was held at the Senshu Center. We talked about the value of Taya cave, which is considered from international joint research with Italian national research institutes, and presented research activities by high school, university, and graduate students. Participants were interested in academic research reports and touched on the unusual surprises of Taya Cave.

In the hall outside the room, the big  topographical model and a cross section model of the cave, which were made by a sixth grader with university collaboration project, were exhibited. There were lively discussions of various types of regions by participants. We were able to share multi-layered valuable information on the region.

There was also interest in using 3D digital data.
