I wonder if an extensive documentation of the historical Japanese community in Hong Kong is possible. After all, the Japanese community has been one of the more prominent communities in both pre-war and post-war Hong Kong. I know that the Japanese make up the second largest nationality interned in the Hong Kong Cemetery. And that the Hong Kong Japanese Club has done extensive research about the pre-war Japanese community. Was there ever any census/ survey conducted on the Japanese community in Hong Kong either by the colonial government or the Japanese embassy?
