UNESCO REGISTERS ANCIENT JAPANESE SITES
“沖ノ島” 世界文化遺産に
A group of ancient monuments in western Japan will be registered as a World Heritage site.
UNESCO officials made the decision on Sunday at a meeting in the Polish city of Krakow. The sacred island of Okinoshima and related sites in the Munakata region of Fukuoka Prefecture will be added to the World Heritage list.
Okinoshima features ritual sites and ornaments used between the fourth and ninth centuries to pray for safe voyages between Japan and other parts of East Asia. Only men are allowed to visit.
In May, a preliminary review panel argued that four of the eight sites should be dropped from the proposal because it could not confirm its archaeological value. But the committee members called for registering all eight monuments together because they are strongly connected.
