About SBI

Welcome to Southern Bridge International (SBI)!


Southern Bridge International (SBI) is a non-profit organization established in ­­­­2003 in North Carolina, serving as a “bridge” between the Japanese and American people.  The objectives of SBI are:

  • to promote Japan-U.S. cultural exchange,

  • to assist with communication in Japanse/English, and

  • to provide useful information on events and living in the U.S. and Japan


“Cultural Exchange”

SBI offers social and cultural events throughout the year.

  • “Carolina Meet’N’Talk” is designed to promote networking among people with an interest in and connection to Japan.  The event is held once a month, so you can meet new people and share stories of your connection to Japan.

  • “Kids Art Class” is for families with young children to learn “Origami” and to play traditional Japanese games in Japanese.  They can also enjoy listening to a Japanese story.

  • “Books & Café” is held monthly. People can check out Japanese books while enjoying snacks and a cup of tea or coffee.



SBI provides Japanese-English translation and interpreting services for school, business, and doctor’s appointment.  SBI also arranges a tutoring service for Japanese students who need help with their school work and homework, and for American students who want to learn Japanese language or culture.  If you are interested in tutoring, please contact us.



Our “CAROLINA T-SHOT” Web Magazine features useful and interesting information associated with the Japan-U.S. communities in NC and SC, articles from local readers, and various events in NC and SC.  If you want to find out more about Japanese restaurants or where to buy Japanese groceries in the area, please contact us.  SBI will do research and post the answer in the CAROLIONA T-SHOT”.
