About us

The Hyogo Business & Cultural Center (HBCC) is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization located in Seattle, Washington. For 20 years, HBCC has served the people of Washington State and Japan's Hyogo Prefecture as an organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and friendship between two regions that share bonds of friendship that span decades.

We meet this goal through educational outreach, supporting language education, offering cultural workshops, assisting student and teacher exchanges, hosting a Japan-related library open to the public, business development services, and sister city support.

The Hyogo Business & Cultural Center also collaborates with a number of community organizations and events to increase awareness of multicultural issues, Hyogo Prefecture and Japan as a whole.

Since opening in 1990, the Hyogo Business & Cultural Center has served thousands of people to further mutual understanding and international relations between our regions. We look forward to maintaining many of our current programs as well as developing future programs and events in the coming years. If you have ideas or questions related to a past, present or future program, please feel free to contact our office.
