Hello and 今日は (konnichi wa) dear followers!

First I want to thank you all for the nice comments I got to my two previous entries. Always makes me happy to read them, 本当にありがとうございます。

Today I want to continue with the Japantag (Japan-day) event. This entry will be about the actual Japantag which was on Saturday.

I woke up around 9:30 am to get ready in time. It always takes around 45 minutes only for getting dressed up in Kimono (+ 1 hour for makeup etc. ). After my boyfriend and me were ready we took a taxi to drive to the Nikko hotel. My friend Laura wanted to make my hair =) Here is the final result and the whole Kimono ensemble for Saturday:

ready to go ~

 We also made a few group pictures in front of the hotel Nikko, here is one of them:

boyfriend, friends and me xD

First we went to several shops:

the Kyoto shop had many beautiful and traditional stuff, even for Kimono and Yukata. But all was very expensive :(

Yukata ♥

Geta ~

rabbit fan >_< ♥

super expensive but cute owl ♥

lovely fans for traditional dance ♥

the Nippon bookstore had mainly Japanese learning books, not very interesting since I already have such books - and tons of magazines:

the OCS store was also open again, but for the last time and had a mega sale. I bought cute rice- and soup bowls there and a mobile phone charm (see on the other pics):

tsuki no usagi ♥ moon rabbit ♥

kingyo - goldfish ♥

After our shopping trip we all went to the Bolkerstraße (Bolkerstreet). I´ve never been to this part of Düsseldorf before *lol* This street it full of restaurants and bars. I mean, in my hometown there are also a lot ... but this place OMG - FOOD HEAVEN! o.o

In the end we found a bar called "Sweet Heart" and ordered some cocktails; mine was without alcohol tho ~

my drink ♥

To get to the Rheinufer (Rhine) where the actual festival takes place, you have to walk through the city:

exclusive shops *money, where are you? *haha*

mega fan xD

Funnily enough this year a lot more people took pictures of me. A man came to me with a professional camera and made a few pics directly in the city. I wish that I can find them someday online but a friend of mine made a pic while I posed ^^"

and a few more stalker pics from my friends *haha*

Finally we arrived at the Rhine promenade ^_^

cloudy but no rain ♥

Rhine promenade ♥

many Cosplayers

The first thing I did was ordering Sobanoodle-soup which was very delicious *o*

Impressive Cosplay:

Disney *w*

... and me again:

Like every year there are tons of stalls which sell anime/manga merchandise, display traditional stuff and much more:

lovely Ikebana ♥


Chiba information stall

furin - windbells ♥

Nya Nya ~

many Maneki-Neko O(=^_^=)O

the most visited stall xD

You really can get a lot of cute and lovely stuff, but most of it is often super expensive, you cannot imagine *sighs*

amazing live painting *o*

Here you can see my shopping haul of Saturday:

cute Hello Kitty envelopes ♥

postcards with trad. motives for my collection ~

art books for my book collection

finally I have Kiharu´s book ^-^ and another Ukiyo-e book

cute wallet ~

Around 20:30 pm we went back to the hotel, I changed my clothes (and already packed most of my stuff into the luggage) to go back to the Rhine promenade for the firework which started aroun 23:00 pm.

It was a good idea that I had changed into normal clothes cause the weather changed and it rained literally cat and dogs ...

Hope you enjoyed the pics and would be nice if you´d leave a comment. THANKS ♥

Wow, so much stuff! Too bad it's all so expensive. You're hair came out so pretty! That's cool that people asked to take pictures of you. Chiba info stall, yeah-ah. I agree with previous comment. REPRESENT. Chiba 4lyfe <3

Aichi hat gesagt…

Yep, tons of great stuff, you need a moneytree or just walk by, look at all the lovely things and cry *haha*

I think the reason was that my whole outfit was so super pink and "flowerish" =3 Next time I should go to the Chiba info stall and read more about it. >_<
