Dokomi 2016

Düsseldorf, which is located in western Germany, is famous for its links to Japanese culture with plenty of Japanese shops and restaurants. It also has the highest number of Japanese in the country. It’s no surprise that the city attracts many Cosplayer and Anime Fans with what it’s offering. When I still went to school there were cosplay gatherings every weekend and I still remember attending a few of them after my language classes each Saturday.

Even though Dokomi has been around for over eight years already and is close to where I grew up I’ve never been before. I don’t know why because it’s super easy for me to get there and accommodation isn’t a problem. That I finally went this year makes it all the more exciting! Friends of mine mentioned and posted about Dokomi many times before but I didn’t completely know what to expect. I think most of you might feel the same way about the convention. So let me first explain some more about the idea behind it and why it was created and still takes place once a year.

Dokomi 2016 Nordpark Düsseldorf

Dokomi is the shortened version of  ドイツコミックマケット which means “German Comic Market”  in English. The convention focuses on strengthening ties within the Japanese fandoms while offering a platform for young adults to exchange ideas and information. This year it took place on the 30th of April and 1st of May. Three years ago the organisers moved its location to the Congress Center Düsseldorf. It’s next to the “Nordpark” which is also where most photo shoots take place. The park offers several different areas and themes. The most popular one being the Japanese garden with its cherry trees and pond.

    // und noch zu deinem Kommi beim NordCon Post:
    Ja, hab gehört und gelesen, dass es recht ähnlich sein soll ^^
    Wir waren zum 1. Mal dort, aber hat Spaß gemacht :3

    Ich hab Boss Monster schon seit längerem im Auge, sicher schon über 1 Jahr xD
    Liegt bei Atlantis im Laden schon länger rum, auch noch mit einer Erweiterung oder nem 2. Teil (weiß ich grad nicht genau), aber kam nie dazu es auszuprobieren und jetzt will ichs unbedingt haben! :'D

    Also ne Übernachtungsmöglichkeit könnte ich dir ggf. anbieten, dann wäre nur die Fahrt noch zu organisieren 😉
