Düsseldorf

Yesterday I went to Düsseldorf with M. We had no idea that the annual Japan Day was taking place but we soon found out as the streets were filled with masses of people disguised as Manga characters. Düsseldorf is the city with the third largest Japanese community in Germany. In and around Immermann Street you will find many Japanese shops and restaurants. Despite some rain showers, it was still nice to do window shopping, enjoy strawberry tart and enjoy a day away from home.

  6. I love your photo of the discarded umbrella, it tells a great story. Must have been really interesting to visit Dusseldorf when the manga characters were there, did you get a chance to chat to anyone?
