Japan Town? Nippon at the Rhine? Little Tokyo? The Japanese quarter in Düsseldorf (Germany) bears various names, but it is also unknown at the same time. Apart from the obvious oriental atmosphere in the streets of the Japanese quarter, and the corporate connections, the cultural exchange between the Germans and the Japanese is negligible. Cross-cultural media is not available.


To fill this gap, this project was about the design and development of a bilingual editorial concept for supporting the German-Japanese cultural exchange.
