A sacred island in southwest Japan that bans women and where male visitors must strip naked before going ashore has been declared a Unesco world heritage site. The 700-square-metre island along with three nearby reefs and four other related sites were given world heritage status at the UN body’s annual summit in Krakow, Poland. The island allows visitors only on a single day every year, May 27, and bars them from taking souvenirs and disclosing details of their visit.
