Hongkou, just north of the Bund, is one of Shanghai’s more interesting neighbourhoods. Close to the city proper, it is an area largely unknown to the Chinese and expats alike. From the earliest Concession days, Japanese shop owners and other entrepreneurs came to the city in search of opportunities. By the 1920’s, there were more than 20,000 Japanese civilians living in Hongkou. In this walk, we will discuss their stories and explore the architectural remains of this forgotten part of Shanghai’s history. This walk, led by Spencer Dodington, is one of the last two walks he is hosting before he repatriates!
