That was the Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW 2022
The unique cultural festival in Düsseldorf
After a two-year break due to Corona, the 19th Japan Day Düsseldorf/NRW finally made the Rhine promenade in Düsseldorf the venue for the friendship celebration between Japan and Germany. 600,000 visitors experienced a peaceful festival and celebrated the culture of Japan with the Japanese community. More than 50 information and action tents were dedicated to both traditional and modern aspects of Japanese culture - from Aikido to Cosplay.
Musical program items such as the concert of the drum group "Miyabi & Lion" and the rousing performance of the J-Pop sensation "Charan-Po-Rantan with Kankan Balkan" thrilled the audience at the main stage and turned the Burgplatz into a party zone. The Japanese fireworks display at the end was held this year under the international motto "Together for peace and friendship".
