In this paper, we propose collecting personal culture of local residents to collective culture, and returning collective culture to local residents as personal culture by using AR technology and historical map. And, we propose a prototype system of regional knowledge inheritance system in order to support the protection and inheritance of regional knowledge. The prototype system has the function of overlaying the historical map on the basic map and the function of presenting the regional knowledge related to the place as an AR.



The authors would like to thank J. Ohmori of Hitachi City Museum for great assistance with the system construction.
