Sayonara Japan Home

ex japan homeSo, Japan Home has been and gone - surely to the relief of various local shops selling a range of items for use in the home.

The building is now empty, and for rent.

When I first came, Park n Shop was here. Later, left to move elsewhere on the island.

Can't remember what happened between then and Japan Home - was it the fancy tea shop that opened for short time?

u-right open cheung chauToday, U-Right opened in the place Japan Home had occupied: another (third) city type store, selling casual wear on Cheung Chau: is this island big enough for the three of them - as well as the other, non-chain clothes shops?

"Hello, welcome" a couple of salesgirls said as I walked in; they smiled cheerily. "Goodbye" said a smiling salesgirl as I walked out - service Giordano style (I believe Giordano introduced such jolliness in HK) - not so much the norm on Cheung Chau!
