Yamada e-mail 23 V 2011; Yamada and Tajima 2014 ms
A Berardius taxidermy was prepared for the 1954 IWC meeting in Tokyo. It was then exhibited in the National Science Museum in Tokyo for a certain period of time, The National Science Museum has no record and we do not know how long it was on display. In 1970 it was given to a high school in Iwate prefecture from the very bottom of the museum storage. Hirota high school of Fisheries kept the specimen for more than 20 years. It was again given to a Rikuzen takada city, for a new museum built in 1994. The specimen hanging from the ceiling was hit by the tsunami in March. The specimen was plastic-coated in 1994, the coating was partly destroyed by the tsunami and National Science Museum is planning to repair it. The quality of the specimen is not very good.
