Kyoto Chosen to Close UNESCO 40th Anniversary Celebrations
Kyoto has been chosen as the venue to close the 40th anniversary celebrations of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention (WHC).
The three day event, which will be held in November, will incorporate a variety of activities and workshops, as well as studies that will be presented on the future direction of the convention.
James Kent, international marketing manager at the Kyoto Convention Bureau said: “The mission of the WHC is perfectly reflected in Kyoto’s events and tourism offering. The city, which was capital of Japan from 794–1868, combines modern facilities with history and culture, including 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, many of which can be used as venues for events.”
