Düsseldorf: My district Oberkassel (also known as little Japan)

Oberkassel is one of four districts on the left side of the river Rhine. Two bridges connect Oberkassel with the Oldtown which is 2 km away.
Europe's biggest japanese community live here and the district already have a japanese school, a japanese Kindergarten and the only japanese temple in Europe.

Buildings at the Kaiser Wilhelm Ring




Most buildings are landmarked


























Viwe to the other side of the river Rhine - The Oldtown




The Rhinetower
