The author analyzes the role of the American Arts and Monuments Section, established in the summer of 1945 within the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (Scap) in order to protect, preserve and restore "recognized works of cultural, historical or artistic signifi cance". As part of the complex program for the protection of cultural heritage in war zones developed by the Allied governments during the Second World War (Monuments, Fine Arts and Archive Program), the activities of the Arts and Monuments Section in Japan can be considered the only Asian case that can be compared to the work done in Europe by the Allied Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Subcommission.
