Introduction

 The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake caused great damages to the Memorial Museum of Fifth High School which is one of the nationally important cultural property, Faculty of Engineering (Building No.1) and others. Figures showed damages visually. However, there are fears fading away the memories and lessons of this earthquake due to restoration works and reducing number of students after the graduation who experienced this earthquake.

 Digital Archives Laboratory builds the archive system laboratory “Hinokuni Saishiroku” to record and store memories and lessons of this earthquake for the future. This digital would help to carry out research and education activities on the importance of preparations for not only earthquake but also for various disasters.
