Welcome! ようこそ!

The Nippon Club of the Triangle hosts annual events and supports several groups to foster deeper cultural understandings between Japanese and Americans. Membership in the club is free and most of our events are also open to non-members. Completing a membership form will give you access to our mailing list which offers news about the club's events and other Japanese cultural events in the Triangle area.

Our affiliated clubs currently include Triangle Taiko (Japanese drumming), Triangle Chanoyu (traditional tea ceremony), Mochitsuki Club (mochi pounding), and Bon Odori Club (Japanese folk dance).
