Disney Halloween

12 Sep

When I first came to Japan, there was no Halloween here.
But it’s become more and more popular in Japan over the years.

It’s different from Halloween in America though. Japanese kids don’t knock on their neighbors doors to “trick ‘r treat” for candy.

There are Halloween parades and some shopping malls let kids “trick ‘r treat” from store to store.

One of the most popular Halloween event in Tokyo is Tokyo Disneyland’s Halloween theme.
It starts in September and goes til October 31st (Tokyo Disney’s X-mas theme starts right after).

    Just put up some decorations and a notice in front of the house in October that you’ll be handing out candy on the 31st. We had more than 50 kids come by, many with parents. Only a few were in costume, but we got some nice princesses. As you say, there plenty of awareness of Halloween, so it just takes someone to get the ball rolling.

      Yeah, if you put a sign up in Japanese that you welcome “trick ‘r treaters”, I can imagine that many Japanese mothers would bring their kids to try.

      Do you live in Tokyo?

    I had heard that the Japanese have embraced, in their own way, a number of American holidays – including Halloween and Christmas. I hope to experience Christmas in Tokyo some day.

      Those, and Valentines Day, are done in a uniquely Japanese way.
