Japantag 2014

20140517_130814-600_9778_wI introduced Japantag here last year and the years before, too. On Saturday the 14. Japantag was held in Duesseldorf and (according to official announcements) 750.000 people showed up.  The festival area is about 700 m long and goes along the river Rhine. Beside the promenade on 2 levels there are 3 squares directly connected to the promenade. Festival stages were set up  on the squares for music and dancing performances.

This was my fourth visit in a row, but probably the last. I was way too crowded. Everything seemed worse than ever. Being with my car in a traffic jam is annoying, but being in a jam as a pedestrian is even worse.

Nevertheless, we have had wonderful summer weather. Just like the years before. But I missed out the fireworks although the fine weather.

As usual I admired the wonderful (usually homemade) costumes most of the visitors were wearing. They came from all parts of Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, France and certainly Japan. So, it was really a feast for a photographer. I attached photo gallery at the end of this post with a small selection for you to have a look. Enjoy!

Take care!
