I just got a Type 1 rifle from the Navy Vet who brought it back from Japan after WWII. Can anyone tell me anything about the writing on the sling or the wooden tag on it?

Thanks,

Chief

What is the best way to start cleaning it?

Chief, they are numbers in first photo. Can't read other kanji. Numbers don't seem to match rifles serial number (rarely do) so they're likely rack numbers. If you ever decide to sell or seperate I'd be interested in sling if it's still pliable.
