Tops Tuesdays!

Happy Halloween!! That's right, it's that time of year; tomorrow is Halloween and Japan is all a twitter! Japan has slowly been adopting this holiday into its own traditions (funnily enough this has coincided with the arrival of ALTs in Japan) and more and more you can see Halloween decorations and products becoming prevalent in Japanese pop culture. And just like everything else in Japan, Halloween is not going to be an exception to the weird and wonderful treatment that only the country that brought you vending machines panties and deeply-confusing anime narratives can afford...

Check out some of my favourite Halloween picks below...

Halloween parades are the norm for celebrating Halloween in Japan. Why not join one (or host one) in your community?

Happy Halloween!


  1. Happy Halloween! Really good to see Japan embracing this celebration more and more. Any signs of trick or treaters in your area, yet?

    1. None as of yet but plenty of treats being exchanged in the school hallways!
