It is a statewide resource intended to assist all citizens, universities, companies, and public and private institutions in relations with the Japanese. The North Carolina Japan Center works to inform the people of the state about modern Japan and its people. It also provides information and resources for Japanese citizens living in North Carolina. There are currently seven chapters of the Center at other North Carolina universities, which spread the efforts more uniformly across the state.
