160 years of German-Japanese friendship
Japan-Days Düsseldorf/NRW 2021
A unique festival of culture and dialogue, every year Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors who want to experience the Japanese flavour of the city and enjoy the grand finale – a spectacular fireworks display on the Rhine. Like last year, such a lavish festival for so many people won’t be possible in 2021 either. But the celebrations aren’t being shelved: various events and activities are planned so that the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries can be marked in fitting style. Japan Day – organised by the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the state capital Düsseldorf and the Japanese community in Düsseldorf – is the biggest festival of its kind in Europe.
