Düsseldorf is said to be one of the major centers of Japanese emigration in Europe. During the years the Japanese left their mark with several restaurants, stores and other establishments. Most of them are located on the Immermannstraße near the main station. Alternatively, you could take a look at the small Japanese garden in the Nordpark or the Eko-Haus.
