The World Monuments Fund (WMF) on Thursday released its 2016 World Monuments Watch list, calling for the preservation of 50 cultural heritage sites at risk in 36 countries, including some 30 small wooden buildings in Tokyo’s Tsukiji district.

The buildings came into existence after the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake and survived the U.S. bombing attacks on the capital in World War II.
