Event Reports

Domo traveled to Germany to attend for the first time Japanese Film Week in Dusseldorf. The festival’s 11th edition took place at the Filmmuseum’s Black Box.

The free event attracts more than 3,000 visitors every year. People could be seen lining up to get tickets one hour before the screening.

Domo’s main responsibility was to greet visitors.

The cold weather didn’t prevent him from making new friends outside the venue.

NHK World presented two documentaries: The Phone of the Wind: Whispers to Lost Families, followed by The Gate: A Pacific Journey.

Both programs received positive reactions. One comment said they conveyed in a very compelling way the Japanese people’s mentality and spiritual links to nature. Many thanks to those who contributed their precious feedback!
