The UNESCO World Heritage Committee decided Tuesday to register a set of ruins from the ancient Jomon Period as a World Heritage cultural property.

The Jomon ruins are 17 sites in Hokkaido and the prefectures of Aomori, Iwate and Akita. They include the Sannai Maruyama site in the city of Aomori, which is one of the largest remains of a Jomon settlement.
