I like the Kanji letter forms in the graff. Always thought it was weird to see Roman/Greek letters in Asia.

 

Kanji? HK is NOT in Japan ;)

I don't think Kanji really lends itself to graffiti too much.

 

So I don't think it's weird to see Latin based letters there.

kanji is japanese not chinese

 

Kanji are Chinese characters used in the Japanese writing system. But still, people will mistake HK as part of Japan which is not.

 

Latin letters are common in HK not just graffiti but in everyday communicatons. HK used to be a British colony before they handed it back to China in 1997. So English is widely used.

I was going to say, "Kanji are Chinese characters used in the Japanese writing system."

 

But I got beat.

There already is a Hong Kong thread. Why make a new one?

 

It's either I did not see it or its all the way in the back. But I already started this thread and have post flix. Hope you enjoy this one :)
