Agency for Cultural Affairs

The Agency of Cultural Affairs (Bunka-cho) was established in 1968 through a merger between the former Cultural Bureau of the Ministry of Education and the Cultural Properties Protection Commission. Amongst others, the Agency for Cultural Affairs furthers international exchange and cooperation.

Based on its present organization the ACA strives to promote culture and international cultural exchange and administers matters concerning religious juridical persons.
