Shirakami-Sanchi (white god mountain area) is a UNESCO World Heritage
Site in northern Honshu, Japan.
This mountainous, unspoiled expanse of virgin forest straddles both Akita
and Aomori Prefectures. Of the entire 1,300 km2, a tract covering 169.7
km2 was included in the list of World Heritage Sites in 1993. Siebold's
beech trees make up a large portion of the forest.
The Shirakami-Sanchi is usually said to contain large areas of forest
not covered by the World Heritage listing.
However the level of preservation in these areas is not as high as in
the central listed area. The World Heritage Site area has never been opened
to human activity or trails other than mountain climbers' paths, and is
planned to be protected in this state.
