HYOGO BUSINESS & CULTURAL CENTER
The State of Washington and Hyogo Prefecture celebrate the 60th Anniversary of their sister-state relationship in 2023.
The Hyogo Business & Cultural Center is an organization devoted to facilitating the sister-state relationship between Washington State and Japan's Hyogo Prefecture. Since opening in 1990, we have served thousands of people furthering mutual understanding and international relations between these regions. We build connections between Washington and Hyogo in the following ways:
supporting language education
offering cultural workshops
assisting student and teacher exchanges
hosting a Japan-related library open to the public
providing businesses with development services
supporting sister-city relationships between Washington and Hyogo cities
collaborating with a number of community organizations on events that increase awareness of multicultural issues, Hyogo Prefecture, and Japan as a whole
We look forward to maintaining many of our current programs as well as developing new programs and events in the coming years. If you have any ideas or questions related to a past, present, or future program, please feel free to contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
