|Mar 28, 2013||Bamse||You've been successfully nominated for your amazing work on the main article National Treasures of Japan as well as all the related list files (listed below). I don't know exactly how much time you've spent spent on these articles, improving them, building them, and going through all the work for each of them in the featured list and topic processes; I'm sure it's in the high hundreds or even into the thousands of hours. You took all of these national treasure lists from creation to featured list status: archaeological materials, buildings (castles, residences, shrines, and temples), crafts (paintings, sculptures, swords, and others), writings (ancient documents, Chinese books, Japanese books, and others).
I think this has been one of the most significant Japan-related contributions in Wikipedia's existence, and has greatly increased the useful information to which readers of the encyclopedia have access. So, in congratulations and sincere thanks for all your hard work, WikiProject Japan hereby awards you the first Japan Barnstar of National Merit.
