A system has been introduced to increase citizens' awareness of these valuable buildings and gardens in order to aid in their preservation and maintenance for future generations.
One feature of this system allows people to voice their opinion about preserving these old structures and heightening their awareness of their historic value as part of the city's repository of architectural treasures.
On the website, "Buildings and Gardens to Preserve" is a list, recommended by citizens which is considered by a Review Board.
Every building and garden is valued. Those of special note have the mark which will be considered for special support in the future.

1. What does Color Scheme of Kyoto entail?
We collect the public's mail regarding buildings and gardens that are of historic and cultural value in order to preserve them. This system, started in Nov. of 2011, has gotten a number of recommendations that are being considered by the Review Board, after which, with the owner's consent, will be added to our list for public recognition.
By releasing these place names, we hope to encourage their preservation and raise awareness of their great value.
