It is gonna be so much fun! It is a great opportunity to learn about Japanese culture, meet many international people, to learn and practice beginner Japanese as well as connecting with people using our native languages too!

There is actually lots of Japanese influence in Hong Kong. There are many snacks, drinks and of course Japanese characters available for people to buy. There are even people who can speak and read some Japanese living in Hong Kong.

Mid Autumn Festival in Hong Kong !

Summer is almost over – the” Mid – Autumn Festival” is coming next week!

If you are living in Hong Kong and wondering what the Mid – Autumn Festival is all about, there are 3 main things!
 
1. The moon
It is the season of the year when the moon is at it’s roundest and fullest. People go out to celebrate the full moon as it has cultural significance to many Hong Kong people.

2. Lanterns
The lanterns are a big part of this festival as they are hung in the streets and traditionally candles are placed inside them. Children play with them and lanterns of all shapes and sizes can be bought from many toy stores in Hong Kong.
