The next Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW will take place on 20 May 2017

The date for the next Japan Day has been set. On 20 May 2017 the German-Japanese bastion of Düsseldorf will be transformed for the 16th time into a place for dialogue with the culture and people of the country for hundreds of thousands of Japan fans. With over 6,500 Japanese inhabitants, the Rhine metropolis is home to one of Europe’s biggest Japanese communities. Staged in conjunction with the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Japanese community, the Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW in the state capital offers unique insights into the Land of the Rising Sun. All along the Rhine embankment promenade visitors from both Germany and abroad can look forward to an authentic and diverse range of music, dance, sport, food, numerous information and activity tents, and interesting stage programmes. The highlight of the festival is a spectacular display of Japanese fireworks that will light up the sky above the Rhine late in the evening.
