The Idaho Japan Business Council was created to be a bridge between Japanese business and Idaho business. This organization works to introduce Japanese and Idaho businesses for possible business opportunities.

This organization is sponsored by the Honorary Consul General of Japan in Idaho. Everyone who is interested in developing business relations between Idaho and Japan is welcome to join. Our main job is to create a list of business resources that companies can utilize.

If you have any information you would like us to include, please contact us.
