I would like to mention something that the Hong Kong media never puts out when it comes to problems regarding Japan: Youths such as myself have no problem with Japan.

As for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Yasukuni Shrine in December, most Hong Kong youths don’t care about it, as most youths are also disillusioned with Hong Kong politics.

I would like to add that most Hong Kong people would rather have Japanese tourists than Mainland Chinese tourists, as the Japanese tourists treat Hong Kong with respect.

A lot of Hong Kong media refuse to publish or talk about what the youths in Hong Kong feel toward Japan.
