As you may already know I’m a huge fan of Japan and Japanese culture. The contrast between modern and traditional, logical and spiritual, hyper-modern and old-fashioned, the long history, amazing scenery and it’s people have always fascinated me.

As a big fan of Japanese (pop) Culture I love going to all sorts of events related to this. One of the biggest events in Europe about Japanese culture is the Japan Tag in Düsseldorf. This is a yearly event that attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over Europe to this one city.
