What do you get when you combine Halloween and Japan? A whimsical, epic time filled with silly spooks, sick sci-fi and a myriad of colorful chaos!
It’s been awhile since I’d gotten dressed for Halloween but that’s not to say I don’t love a good show.
So today’s episode is all about experiencing Halloween in one of my favorite countries!
Though Halloween is essentially one evening in a year, I’m featuring the highlights of my Japan two-week family trip last October 2016.
You’ll get to see what activities there are to enjoy not just in Tokyo but in Sapporo and Nagoya as well – whether you’re in costume or not.
Showing a few snippets here from the few times I managed to remember to take photos from too much fun but the real content is in the video – as I always always mention in every post.
I find that taking videos is so much easier than photos — you just shoot. While photos, at least for me, takes a lot more time due to composition, timing, blah blah blah.
TOKYO: Disney Sea & Disneyland
SAPPORO: Ishiya Chocolate Factory
TOKYO: Studio Ghibli
*** No photos allowed inside the popular tourist spot. The multi-level whimsical house also serves as an interactive museum on all things animation plus a cafe – the ice cream cone is so good btw – and a souvenir shop.
NAGOYA: Nagoya City Science Museum & Planetarium
This is me realizing I didn’t take any photos from having too much fun inside the planetarium, haha! Don’t worry, videos I got loads of — so you gotta watch to know what I’m talking about!
The calm before the Halloween storm…
Halloween in such disciplined cultures like Japan give you something to look forward to and I truly wasn’t disappointed.
In fact, the highlight of Shibuya was when I tried to make friends in the subway as comically shared on Instagram.
