The Yamato Declaration on Integrated Approaches for Safeguarding Tangible and Intangible Cultural Heritage was an outcome of a meeting held in Nara, Japan in October 2004 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Nara Document on Authenticity and the 40th anniversary of the Venice Charter. The meeting was organised by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs (Bunka-cho), ACCU (the Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO), the Nara Prefecture and Nara City, and the UNESCO Division of Cultural Heritage.
