Main Matsuri 2023

It's almost time! The Main Matsuri Japan Festival takes place for the first time this summer on the grounds of the Büsing-Palais in Offenbach am Main.

From 18.08. to 20.08.2023, we will transform the Büsing-Palais into a Japanese summer festival with a rousing stage programme, delicious food, stalls to browse and much more. Those of you who have known us for a while know how much work and heart and soul we put into this festival to offer you an unforgettable experience over three days. The focus is on diversity, great entertainment at a high level and a smooth, safe process for all visitors, exhibitors and artists.

Our aim is to make Japanese culture accessible to everyone. This also means that we would like to celebrate Main Matsuri in Offenbach am Main with you for many years to come. Despite great support from our loyal sponsors and partners, it is unfortunately not possible to continue to offer such a festival free of charge without compromising on quality. Therefore, we have decided to take a entrance since last year. For children under 12, the entrance fee remains free. We hope that you will continue to support us, because you, our visitors, are the heart of Main Matsuri.

We are already looking forward to seeing many of you there! More info will follow soon.

ANA, Japan's largest airline and a member of the Star Alliance, offers a multi-award-winning in-flight product, innovative technology and first-class service on its flights. This guarantees a first-class travel experience on the more than 117 domestic and 58 international routes.

In addition to Paris, London and Brussels, the airline normally also connects Vienna and the German cities of Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf with Tokyo on direct flights. At present, however, the service on all routes is severely restricted due to the situation, and some routes are suspended until further notice.

ANA is one of very few airlines worldwide to have been awarded the highest Skytrax ranking of five stars by the Skytrax rating agency every year since 2013. In addition, ANA was also awarded the 5-star COVID19 safety rating by Skytrax in 2021 for its "ANA Care Promise" hygiene concept, which aims to guarantee the highest possible safety, cleanliness and hygiene on the ground and on board.

It is not only as the main sponsor of the Main Matsuri that it is a matter close to ANA's heart to bring Japanese culture in all its fascinating facets closer to a broad public in a sustainable manner.
