The paper examines this mode of cultural globalization on the basis of the conservation of architectural heritage in Japan.

In early 1987, the William Penn Foundation commissioned a study of the institutions that house artistic and historical collections to assess their need for conservation treatment and management. The impetus for the study was the increasing evidence that the museums and historic organizations created to preserve our cultural heritage were, in fact, not able to adequately preserve and maintain their collections.
