Abstract

Whether tourist or resident, one confronts a surprising amount of Japanese commodity culture in Hong Kong: Japanese supermarkets, Japanese comics (manga) on newsstands, Japanese fast food, pop music, and ubiquitous Hello Kitty shops selling every kind of trinket imaginable. In electronic media, there is a huge selection of Japanese computer games, toys, and anime (animation) as well as Japanese films screening at multiplexes. In video and record shops, there are not only large sections of "J-pop," but also handsome box sets of Japanese prime-time television called simply "yat-kek" (Japanese drama) in Cantonese.
