Düsseldorf turns Japanese: Far-Eastern flair conquers the city on the Rhine

On May 25, the City of Dusseldorf is celebrating its eighteenth Japan Day and says: Konnichiwa! Far Eastern culture conquers the Rhine and in all its splendor. A wide-ranging program, sometimes covering some 70 tents, takes visitors to a different world year after year. The perfect illusion arises from a special attention to detail and manifests itself in a colorful program that does not only delight Japanese fans: music, dance, sports and culinary not only provide deep insights into the diversity of the country, but also make possible an adventurous experience in the middle of the city on the Rhein. You want to experience Japan? Then come to Düsseldorf on May 25th.

Dusseldorf: The Japanese capital on the Rhine

The ceremony of the Japan Day, on which the Rhine metropolis of Dusseldorf shines for a day in Far Eastern splendor, is the expression of a long-lasting friendship. It has been around for six decades and goes back to the pioneering work of Japanese merchants. Impressed by the Rhineland skills in steel and mechanical engineering, Düsseldorf proved to be a predestined location for Japanese companies. As a result, not only more and more Japanese companies settled in Dusseldorf, but so did their employees and their families. Today, Düsseldorf is considered the third largest Japanese community in Europe - about 8400 Japanese found their new home here. The gain that Dusseldorf experiences through its Japanese citizens is also reflected in the infrastructure. Düsseldorf is enriched by Japanese retail shops, booksellers and doctors. Japanese kindergartens, schools, clubs, a Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and a Consulate General have also arrived. A special feature is the EKO House in Niederkassel and the Japanese Garden in Golzheim.

Golzheim and Niederkassel: A piece of Japan in the middle of Germany

If you want to experience Japan, you can either book a direct flight from Dusseldorf to Tokyo or take the tram to Golzheim or Niederkassel. In Niederkassel you will find the EKO house, including its Buddhist temple. This is a real unique and thus the only Japanese temple on European soil. In the EKO-Haus you will also find exhibition and lecture rooms, as well as a library. Last but not least, the regular events - such as Buddhist festivals, tea ceremonies or music events - make the Far Eastern Japan not seem so far away and provide exciting insights into Japanese culture. If you are more interested in exploring the Japanese flora, we recommend a visit to the Nordpark in Golzheim. Here Japanese garden art extends to a spacious area of 5000 m² and provides insights into the natural beauty of the country.
