Boo! Experience Japanese Halloween and Dress Up!

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

Halloween in Japan...?

 

Of course not a traditionally Japanese festival, but who cares! In the big cities they go crazy with Halloween nonetheless. Though there’s not ‘trick or treat’ element, many clubs and bars hold special Halloween nights.

Where's the party at?

During Halloween, many clubs and bars hold their own Halloween nights with a special line up, Halloween-themed drinks, and of course, over-the-top decorations. But one need not even enter a bar to enjoy the show: just walk on the street (especially the Shibuya and Shinjuku areas) and you’ll be treated to the wildest of costumes! Coming from Europe myself, I was quite surprised by the amount of work people put in their costumes. Especially Shibuya (known for the famous 'Scramble crossing') swarms with monsters, killers, escaped prisoners and what not on the 31st of October. Do you dare to join them?

What an amazing day and one we will never forget! Our time in Kyoto was very limited and Kosuke helped make every minute count without feeling rushed. Each moment was more memorable than the last.

We were extremely impressed with his driving skills, especially his mastery of navigating Kyoto’s m...
