From the account of Shin Hirayama, assistant archivist :
“I found this image in thumbdrive 145 during a routine digital archiving exercise for Professor Matsura’s files. Most of his digital files and reports are accurately named and arranged into folders for easy access and for recalling, but this image was placed alone in a folder titled ‘Miracle’.”
