Dusseldorf: The first Japanese registered in Dusseldorf, Germany was in the year 1905 and of course he remained in the subsequent period by no means the last. Today with a number of over 8500 people, the Japanese community in Düsseldorf is the third-largest in Europe.

Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW: 750,000 visitors experience Japan on the Rhine

Taking place for the thirteenth time, the Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW on 17th May 2014 was once again a great sensation with its authentic, Far Eastern atmosphere, attracting more than 750,000 visitors to the Rhine. Around 60 information and demonstration tents lining the Rhine embankment promenade invited visitors to familiarise themselves with the country’s hugely diverse culture. Japanese pop culture – in the shape of the bands “Crow x Class” and “The Asterplace”, and the finals of the “Dance Delight” street dance competition – was given plenty of space on the main stage alongside displays of traditional Japanese culture. The highlight and grand finale of this festival of culture and dialog was the Japanese fireworks display that spirited visitors away into the vividly colourful imagery of “Japan’s Four Seasons”. The next Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW will take place on 30th May 2015.

After London and Paris, the Japanese community in Düsseldorf is the third-largest in Europe. Around 8,200 Japanese people live in the Rhine metropolis and the surrounding area. Almost 500 Japanese companies operate in the Düsseldorf region, some 360 of them in the state capital itself. Japanese companies employ more than 31,000 people in North Rhine-Westphalia.
