What are Registered Tangible Cultural Properties?

There are many landscapes around us that we wish to preserve into the future. Even familiar buildings that we enter without much thought can be considered precious cultural properties if they have a good representation of a certain feature of an era, or if the buildings are such that cannot be built again. The cultural property registration system was created in order to protect such buildings of cultural asset, and utilize them as assets for the local community. To be recognized as a Registered Tangible Cultural Property Building, the building should have a history of 50 years of more, and acquire a certain level of appraisal as being a property of cultural value. After the building is registered, efforts are made toward its preservation and utilization through a relaxed system of control based on a notification system.
