Japan Day 2011

Last Saturday I was in Düsseldorf for visiting Japantag.

That’s the celebration of the friendship of Japan and Germany.  It’s celebrated in Düsseldorf, because Düsseldorf is the city with the most people from Japan. This year we celebrated the 150 year anniversarys and it’s the 10th Japantag.
