First of all, the stock certificate you have is Japanese, not Chinese. Kabishiki-Kaisha (????) is the Japanese word for corporation. In Chinese it would be Youxian Gongsi (????).

The Japanese name of the company that issued the stock certificate is ???????? but a quick check shows that they don't have a website. I also checked the Tokyo Stock Exchange and it shows that no such company is listed.

I would guess that the company has either been acquired or gone bankrupt. Either way, I suspect your certificate is now worthless.

In large urban areas you should be able to find at least one Bank of Hong Kong. Go there and ask for them to advise you.

A note to the wise...don't leave the paper with them. If they say they need it for research, tell them it's a copy or nothing.
