Halloween in Japan

More and more Japanese people love to join Halloween events such as costume parades, drinking parties, and annual photos with family and friends.

Halloween is always a big business opportunity for many companies in Japan no matter what genre they are operating in. Pastry shops are busy coming up with new cake design weekly, on the other hand nailists are tired of repeatedly-ordered orange and black nails from customers. English school owners go calculating their income of the event, and go simulating party games with staff. It's exactly the same as what is happening outside of Japan in this season.

Kids had been always the target of Halloween industry, but these days adults even in their 30s,  40s are likely to feel the uplifting mood. Small gifts (especially boxed sweets  and English-tea bags) are selling well. That's one of the easiest way to share the happy mood with whom they like to stay. 

Some extremists are getting dressed in  super weird way with full painting on their faces. Others show high quality mocking of their favorite TV animation characters. Among this chaos, though, there is almost no burglary or serious crime, which is Japan's strongest point. However, in case of congestion and disorders in the streets, DJ Police is deployed.

Who are they?  What do they do? Check the website with the key word "Shibuya, DJ Police."

I had a really enjoyable time with Namie. I had organised to meet with the owner of a fake food workshop as part of a research trip and she translated our conversations perfectly. We also visited an onsen in Shinjuku which was really lovely, we had hot stone therapy and enjoyed the baths.

I had the absolute pleasure of having Namie show me around various parts of Tokyo for 4 days during my stay in Japan. I’m back in my home country now and have already raved about her to so many family and friends. I am not a seasoned traveller but I did have some places I wanted to visit that weren’t the typical touristy type of spots so Namie helped put together an itinerary that reflected my r...

I came across TripleLights while looking for a rent-a-friend service and couldn't be happier with the results. Namie filled the role of friend, translator, tour guide, and good sport no matter what antics we had planned for the day. Namie did a good job preparing for the locations we intended to visit in Akihabara prior to meeting up (maid cafe, cosplay store, brandy bar, and art gallery). She may...

Namie was very nice and accommodating. Throughout our visit she not only shared interesting information specific to our tour but also more broadly about the Japanese culture. She also did not hesitate to help sort out some travel arrangements that were challenging due to the language barrier. Thank you Namie for a wonderful afternoon!

Namie is a delight to be with and extremely thoughtful of her clients. My only minus would be that she was not always right on the directions we should go. I am sure she will learn more of the city in time. I would have her again.

Namie showed us around Harajuku and Shibuya for a couple of hours! We were able to see Meiji Jingu, Takeshita St and Shibuya Crossing. She went out of her way and spent some extra time with us to help my mum find some items for her friend which I am grateful for! Wish we had booked Namie for a longer if I had known it would take more time than expected!! Would recommend to book for at least 4-5 ho...
