List of Special Places of Scenic Beauty, Special Historic Sites and Special Natural Monuments


To protect Japan's cultural heritage, the country's government selects through the Agency for Cultural Affairs important items and designates them as Cultural Properties under the Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties Designated items are classified in a number of categories, one of which is Monuments 記念物, kinenbutsu This category includes historic locations such as shell mounds, ancient tombs, sites of palaces, sites of forts or castles, monumental dwelling houses and other sites of high historical or scientific value; gardens, bridges, gorges, mountains, and other places of great scenic beauty; and natural features such as animals, plants, and geological or mineral formations of high scientific value12

The government further designates "significant" monuments classifying them in three categories: Historic Sites 史跡, shiseki, Places of Scenic Beauty 名勝, meishō, and Natural Monuments 天然記念物, tennen kinenbutsu Items of particularly high significance receive higher classifications: Special Historic Sites 特別史跡, tokubetsu shiseki, Special Places of Scenic Beauty 特別名勝, tokubetsu meishō, and Special Natural Monuments 特別天然記念物, tokubetsu tennen kinenbutsu respectively As of April 1, 2016 there are 1,021 Natural Monuments, 1,760 Historic Sites, 398 Places of Scenic Beauty, 75 Special Natural Monuments, 36 Special Places of Scenic Beauty and 61 Special Historic Sites Since a single item can fall under more than one of these categories, the total number of sites is less than the sum of designations
