Japan Heritage

Summary

Japan Heritage (日本遺産, Nihon Isan) is a programme sponsored by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, aimed at valorization by local governments and other bodies, that sees individual Cultural Properties across the different categories as well as other not yet designated assets grouped together into thematic "stories" that the Agency then designates as "Japan Heritage". The first such was designated in 2015 and as of June 2020 there were one hundred and four of these narratives.[1][2][3][4]
