After a two-year hiatus because of Covid-19, Europe’s biggest Japanese festival made a successful comeback in Düsseldorf – with kimonos, cosplay, music and a fireworks display! 

21st Japan-Tag Düsseldorf/NRW will take place on 1 June 2024/ Japanese cultural festival will once again attract numerous visitors to Düsseldorf in 2024

One of Europe's largest Japanese culture and encounter festivals is returning to Düsseldorf in 2024 and the specific date has been finalised. The 21st Japan-Tag Düsseldorf/NRW will take place on 1st of June 2024.

Innovations for the 21st Japan-Tag Düsseldorf/NRW

Exciting innovations are planned for the cultural festival. The organisers are already working hard to create an unforgettable celebration of Japanese culture. They are also considering a more optimal use of space for the location on the meadow in front of the state parliament. The area is to be used even more intensively in 2024.

The authorisation of food trucks was very well received in 2023. Food truck applications are therefore also possible for 2024. In addition, the gastronomic offer will be further increased so that even more restaurateurs can enrich the cultural festival with culinary delights. The application portal for caterers, exhibitors and artists will open soon. All information can be found at
