  At a time when the pandemic is making travel difficult between Japan, Hong Kong and Macau, we hope that this event will help both the industry and the general public gain a better understanding of Japanese cultural industries. A Q&A session will be held at the event, where participants can either provide questions in advance or ask questions on the spot for Mr SUEMITSU to answer.
