Abstract

Jimura (2015) investigated the relationship between World Heritage Site (WHS) listing and local identity through the analysis of 14 Japanese WHSs, and identified three requirements WHS inscription must satisfy to contribute greatly to creating/enhancing local identity. First, the site must not be well-known to visitors before WHS designation but see a clear increase in the visitor number afterwards. Second, it must not have played a significant role in the local community before WHS inscription, but the community’s awareness of the value of the site must have been enhanced subsequently. Third, it needs to be a definite area where local population resides. Five sites have been added to Japan’s list of WHSs since the time of Jimura (2015)’s investigation, making it a total of 19 WHSs as of February 2016. Hence, this paper re-examines the association between WHS designation and local identity by exploring whether the three requirements are still valid.
