Some "Japantag 2011" Impressions

So on Saturday I went and visited the "Japantag" in Düsseldorf. Usually it is hold in spring, but due to the catastrophe in Japan back then, they moved it to October. 

My impression: I enjoyed listening to the orchestra of Düsseldorf's Japanese International school and "watching" the Watanabe dance group and some other stuff at the small booths along the Rhine-promenade. But I guess it was even more crowded than last year, it was really hard to get to see the Rhine, people (especially crazy ones) everywhere XP
Temperaturewise it was quite refreshing, and moving around in kimono wasn't uncomfortable at all in contrast to the last years, where it was either hot (and crowded) or rainy.

In the End it became to cold for me to stay for the fireworks and waiting alone in the cold isn't too exciting, too. I left rather early and enjoyed watching the fireworks on TV later in the evening (^.^)
