This interesting Japanese centre offers a temple, tea, gardens and a Japanese house.
Düsseldorf is renowned for its reputation as a cosmopolitan and multicultural city. Among other cultures, there is a large Japanese community here, which is the largest in all of Europe. There are over 7,000 Japanese residents, and this centre was opened in 1993 to honour and teach the values and customs of this culture. This house dedicated to Japanese culture is located at Brüggener Weg, in the Niederkassel neighbourhood. Inside, you can visit its Buddhist temple, its enormous and beautiful Japanese garden and a traditional house, where you can sample Japanese tea (a very popular attraction for tourists and locals alike). Traditional activities, such as musical, dance and theatre performances, are frequently held here too. This is a must-visit for anyone who would like to find out more about eastern cultures, while visiting one of Düsseldorf’s most beautiful areas.
