About the World Heritage

The properties inscribed to the World Heritage List represent the shared natural and cultural heritage of all mankind. These properties are distinguished by their outstanding universal value (OUV), and their inclusion in the World Heritage is a commitment to preserve that universal value for future generations. The World Heritage is divided into three categories.

  • Cultural Heritage: Monuments, groups of buildings, sites, cultural landscapes, and other human works
  • Natural Heritage: Natural features, geological and physiographical formations, habitats and/or ecosystems, and areas of natural beauty
  • Mixed Heritage: Site with properties of both natural and cultural heritage

World Heritage Convention

The “Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage” (“World Heritage Convention”) was adopted in 1972. Japan became a signatory in 1992, and is now one of 190 states parties to the Convention. The World Heritage Committee, which consists of 21 elected member states, establishes the sites to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

World Heritage List Inscription

Countries (states parties) prepare a Tentative List of properties prior to submitting nomination proposals to the World Heritage Committee. If, based on the recommendations of its advisory bodies, the Committee determines that the nomination meets at least one of the necessary criteria, then the property proposed is inscribed on the World Heritage List at the Committee’s annual meeting. The “Jomon Archaeological Sites in Hokkaido, Northern Tohoku, and other regions” is one of thirteen cultural and one natural properties on Japan’s Tentative List.
