Halloween in Japan 2014

November 1, 2014 Juju Kurihara 0 Comments

10 years ago, many shops and supermarkets were promoting Halloween and yet, very few celebrated. No kinds came to our house for some candies. When I was small, Halloween was some Western event I would see in the films. 

Now, 2014 is completely different. Streets are full of people who are in the priginal costumes. I don´t know if Japanese kids have fun more than the adults.


Here are some collection of photos of Halloween in Japan 2014.

Haku from Spirited Away. Not scary though.



Girls are ready to go (almost).

I wonder if her neck doesn´t get tired. 



Some people were mentioning in Twitter how dirty the streets were day after and saying that people have to be more responsible for the rubbish. After having fun, clean up.

How was your Halloween? Many children came for the sweet but I didn´t have any. Most of them were OK but a few asked me if I didn´t have even an apple… Sorry kids, I didn´t.
