Korean envoy docs added to UNESCO program   

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Oct. 31 said it had decided to add documents on Korean envoys to Japan and three ancient stone monuments in Gunma Prefecture to its Memory of the World heritage program.

    UNESCO added 333 documents spread across 12 prefectures in Japan and South Korea relating to envoys sent by the Korean Dynasty to the Tokugawa shogunate. It also decided to register three stone monuments in Gunma Prefecture known as the "Three Stelae of Kozuke."

    The records of Japanese diplomat Sugihara Chiune, who saved many Jewish refugees from Nazi persecution during World War II, had also been nominated for registration, but UNESCO did not add them to the program.

    Registrations for the Memory of the World program are screened by UNESCO's expert International Advisory Committee. There are now seven Japan‐related registrations, following five registered by 2015.

    The registered articles on the envoys include documents and pictures showing their procession from Tsushima in Nagasaki Prefecture, through Edo, to Nikko Toshogu Shrine, the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu.
