It was, then, reorganized in 1952 into the Tokyo National Research Institute of Cultural Properties with the establishment of its Departments of Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Conservation Science, and General Affairs. The Department of Restoration Techniques was added in 1973. The Department of Archives was set up in 1977. The Division of International Cooperation for Conservation was set up in 1993 and then converted into the Japan Center for International Cooperation in Conservation in 1995, thus expanding the Institute to its present scale."
