About the Anniversary “160 Jahre Deutsch-Japanische Freundschaft”

It has to be explained why there is a anniverary “160 years”. The explanation is quite simple. The original anniversary “150 years” should have been celebrated in the year 2011, however that coincided with the 3.11 triple disaster (earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster). Many of the planned festivities had to be cancelled. So all of the ceremonies plus some new ones shall be caught up this year 2021.
