What is the National Center for the Promotion of Cultural Properties?

The National Center for the Promotion of Cultural Properties was established under the National Institutes for Cultural Heritage in July 2018 to allow for a greater number of people to better recognize and appreciate Japan’s cultural works, both in Japan and abroad. The organization’s official abbreviation is the “CPCP.” See the Mission and Vision section for more information.
