Japan Heritage

About topic

The Japan Heritage (日本遺産) project aims to revitalize local communities through understanding and recognising the local cultures and traditions of Japan, passed down via stories based on regional history and traditions. This makes the programme distinct from World Heritage Sites or Designated Cultural Properties, which aims to add value or otherwise preserve existing cultural properties.
