The component sites with the World Heritage registration include, in addition to the majestic mountain that forms Japan's highest peak, the surrounding trails, forests, shrines, lakes, and more.

Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution

In 2015, “Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution” was registered as a World Heritage site.

This site consists of 23 separate parts spread out over the 8 prefectures of Yamaguchi, Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Kagoshima, Iwate, and Shizuoka. These parts are related to the iron and steel, shipbuilding, and coal mining industries that played a massive role in Japan's rapid modernization from the end of the Tokugawa shogunate to the Meiji period. This World Heritage site, commemorating what could be said to be the origin of Japan's manufacturing industry, offers visitors the chance to see how things were at the forefront of Japan's early modernization, and sense the driving spirit of the men behind it.
