Our Department

Our Team

Our team consists of four professors, eight research associates, two full-time lecturers of Japanese language, three secretaries as well as a changing number of visiting lecturers and student assistants. Two professors are from Japan, while the other two are Germans. Not only is the department one of the largest in Germany, but no other has two Japanese professors! Our two full time lecturers are also one from Japan and one from Germany. 

The department also cooperates with institutions from the Japanese diaspora in Dusseldorf. We share an information booth with the consulate general at the Japan Day each year, take field trips to the Buddhist temple Eko House in Oberkassel and encourage our students to get into contact with Japanese companies and people in Dusseldorf as quick as possible.
