Dusseldorf Japan Day
From: 2014.05.25 To: 2014.05.25
Düsseldorf has the highest concentration of Japanese people in Germany – and this must be celebrated! For one May day, Düsseldorf transforms itself into a Japanese city in honour of its Japanese citizens. A multifaceted cultural programme attracts thousands of Manga fans dressed up as comic figures - making it the most important Manga meeting point in Europe. Other highlights are the ten hours of stage shows and free-of-charge join-in activities. Far-eastern skills such as Origami, Ikebana and calligraphy can be admired and tried out. Samurai present their magnificent armours. Japanese sports such as Sumo, Judo and Karate as well as Kyudo archery are demonstrated. At the grand finale, pyrotechnicians from the Far East ignite the biggest Japanese fireworks display outside of Japan. It's sure to make many eyes sparkle!
