The 2018.04.11 latest information
As for the Shurijo Castle Park, approximately 25 years passed from opening of the park of 1992.
"Vermilion (dirt) is castle" only in Japan Shurijo Castle of nature lacquer was painted with, it is, so to speak, necessary to perform work such as lacquered repaints appropriately to be "work of japanner art", and to continue protecting the "vermilion" (dirt).
We performed work such as lacquered repaints since opening of the park about Tadashi appropriately, but it is always exposed to strong sunlight of southern country and intense wind and rain, and deterioration of the lacquer painting and coloring, detachment of gold leaf become remarkable.
Therefore, it was planned that we carried out work such as lacquered repaints of Shurijo Castle Tadashi in 3 ka year from 2016 and completed repaint work on the main shrine front side (center part) so far. We carry out the front left side, the right construction progressively sequentially from April, 2018.
Because part of Tadashi becomes hard to be seen by installing footing and seat during work period, we will cause customer of visiting trouble, but I would like understanding and cooperation as we protect "vermilion" (dirt) of Shurijo Castle main shrine, and it is work to protect important cultural heritage in the next generation, and to inherit.
※As far as work such as lacquered repaints on the Shurijo Castle front side can be possible about lower part; of sense of incongruity is going to install footing on lapping seat so that there is not. Except it, we are going to use mesh sheet for work place so that all of you who had you visit can see a part of the work situation.
(but, depending on painting process, we may cover with cloth for ultraviolet ray prevention and temperature-humidity adjustment.)
