Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW 2019 on 25th May

On 25 May, for the 18th time the Düsseldorf Rhine embankment promenade will be highlighting Japanese culture. Japan Day fans can expect a range of music, dance, sports and culinary delights that provide extensive insight into the country's diversity. In around 70 tents, visitors will receive comprehensive information and can also become active themselves - for example at the kimono fitting or the Cosplay and Manga competition. The highlight in the evening will be a concert by the Japanese band Kurofune, which will be performed at 21:40 at the Burgplatz. With the fireworks from 23:00, visitors will be taken on a colourful "trip to Japan". This year, the Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW will also be marked by the partnership of Düsseldorf with the Chiba prefecture, which is to be sealed directly before the beginning of the festival.
