The Nippon Club of the Triangle is a nonprofit organization run by all volunteers and committed to providing intercultural programs and activities in the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) of North Carolina.

The Club’s major goal is to foster deeper cultural understandings between Japanese and Americans. To achieve this goal, the Club promotes US-Japan cultural exchange and conducts local service activities. The Nippon Club warmly welcomes everyone, Japanese and non-Japanese, who support its goal.

There is no cost to join the club and most of our events are also open to non-members. Completing a form to join us will give you information about the club’s events and other Japanese cultural events in the Triangle area by e-mail. You can also become a member of one or more of the member culture clubs by contacting the group directly.
