About NichiBei Connect

The Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission created NichiBei Connect in an effort to assist Americans and Japanese who have lived, worked or studied in one another’s country build pathways for professional development and remain engaged with Japan and the United States.  During its discussions about the future of the U.S.-Japan relationship, CULCON’s Next Generation Task Force Members had identified the need for a platform that would serve as a growing warehouse of searchable information about U.S.-Japan related jobs, internships, scholarships and fellowships.  NichiBei Connect is an updated, searchable warehouse of opportunities in the field of U.S.-Japan relations.  Users may register on NichiBei Connect as opportunity seekers or as contributors.

The website is funded and maintained by the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission (The Commission).
