Cultural Exchange and International Contributions

The Agency for Cultural Affairs promotes the diverse arts and culture of Japan overseas, engages in international cultural exchange and builds an international hub of creativity and information for culture and arts. The Agency also promotes international cooperation in the protection of cultural properties by sending Japanese experts overseas, or developing overseas local human resources.  The Agency ultimately hopes to advance the arts and culture of Japan by encouraging mutual understanding with other countries, creating and reinforcing networks of cultural figures and artists, and prompting new artistic creation based on this exchange.
