    Difference between hope and wish

    Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English gives the following example.
    "I hope (NOT wish) that we'll all meet again soon."


    My question is if the following usage is incorrect.


    I wish that you will enjoy your stay in Japan when you visit me next year.

    But in short, no, you need to say "I hope you enjoy......"
