People who like Japan are like addicts: they miss Japan all the time and always crave to go back. For those who want to satiate their Japanese addiction, they can go to the “Lan Kwai Fong Japanese Carnival” in November, where this year’s theme is “Cool Japan”. As part of the Hong Kong Tourism Board’s “Hong Kong Feast of November” and the Japanese Consulate in Hong Kong “Japan Autumn Festival Hong Kong – Charisma Rediscovery – 2018”, Lan Kwai Fong will be transformed into a gorgeous Japanese autumn festival market.
