Tangible Cultural Properties (有形文化財 yūkei bunkazai) as defined by the Japanese government's Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties are Cultural Properties of high historical or artistic value such as structures, paintings, sculptures, handicrafts, calligraphic works, ancient books, historic documents, archeological artifacts and other such items created in Japan.

Korea seems to have followed suit in creating a similar list to protect its cultural heritage.
