Halloween in Japan
Halloween in Japan: What’s Different?
With the advent of Halloween, I had a few friends asking me questions about how the holidays in Japan are spent. they are asking.
In short, the solution is yes.
Over the past ten years, Japan as a whole has shown a gradual increase in interest in Halloween and, as a result, an increase in advertising. The sets, visuals and costumes that have won will not only be available to audiences at Tokyo Disneyland, they have become more common, but they cannot be expected with Western countries.
Trick or cure rarely happens in Japan
Almost always, the main thing that people want to understand is “a trick or a cure?”
In my estimation, this lack of gimmick or cure in Japan is not going to change anytime soon, and here’s why: as I mentioned earlier, a sensation. The need to travel home to buy candy would be a huge inconvenience for a few.
So if there is no gimmick or cure in Japan, what kind of Halloween can be spent in the land of the rising sun?
Many “cosplay” (costume) fanatics find the idea of dressing up as very attractive, and it is often a particularly popular mindset among those who are Harajuku and thus the otaku (geek) crowd in general.
With that in mind, it goes to show that Halloween ends mostly for adults looking to dress up. Costume parties draw attention to the places where alcoholic drinks are served and therefore at the end of October
The Shibuya cross-country crossing will not be a party place with the over 70,000 drunk people who gather on its streets every year. Sadly, after the truck was overturned amid chaos last year, public drinking has sprung up due to the ban in Shibuya during the Halloween season. It will be interesting to find out how things are this year.
However, experience in international schools in Japan, for example, tends to vary across the rest of Japan. counting on the university, they will be fine, so the kids there can experience what he wants to celebrate Halloween during the western country.
For example, at the university where I teach, we had a class for kindergarten teachers dressed as witches, princesses, mummies and vampires. We made them go to every classroom in the school to mention “trick or treat” to any ghost or goblin (or teacher) who expected them to receive a treat or other gift in the classroom.
Some companies allow their employees to dress for all day – for a touch of backstage – although this is still not that common. The staff at GaijinPot always step into a suit!
At this point, horror movies and shows are filling up cinemas and TV shows, and horror-themed bars and restaurants are booked.
Speaking of ghost stories, GaijinPot collects readers’ own anecdotes about the paranormal they experienced in Japan as part of this year’s Halloween celebration. Share your story in the form on this page for the opportunity to be posted on the blog later this month!
With the Rugby World Cup Final on November 2, this month will be a lot of fun. Better get your costumes ready!
