Japan Day

Celebrations on the 2nd of June!

If you are visiting during the summer months, you will be able to enjoy several open-air festivals and cultural activities, as the locals like to enjoy the good weather as soon as it arrives. One of the most noteworthy celebrations is Japan Day, which takes place every 2nd of June on the Rhine riverbanks, in an enormous green park located between Burgplatz and the Parliament. During this festival, the Japanese community (which amounts to over 7,000 residents, making it the largest Japanese community in Europe) displays its culture to those who attend as a means of thanking the city for welcoming the culture into its society. It is also a way of exhibiting their culture, and you will be able to enjoy traditional dancing, music, martial arts, Japanese culinary demonstrations, and even lessons in origami. If you can make it here for this date, don’t miss out on this huge display of multiculturalism that Düsseldorf has to offer.
