UNESCO included four natural sites in Japan, all of which are islands:

From the Republic of Korea, Getbol, which is a tidal plain, is included. From Thailand the Kaeng Krachan forest complex, and from Georgia the Colchis rainforests and wetlands.
The sites that entered the UNESCO World Heritage List for their cultural values are:
