Dusseldorf Japan Day

dusseldorf_japanday_2

 

Dusseldorf has a large Japanese community, and so, ever year it celebrates Japan Day. There are demonstrations of everything from sumo wrestling to archery. The Rhine prominade is lined with tents where you can try on a Kimono and get a professional photographer to take your picture, or if you prefer, have your portrait drawn Manga style. That brings me to the main attraction: the crowd is filled with people who are dressed as their favourite Manga characters, and many look like they stepped directly out of the comic.
