Tokyo Halloween 2017
Maction Planet were in Shibuya tonight for one of the biggest parties in Tokyo – Halloween!
Once upon a time, Tokyo Halloween could only be enjoyed in a few bars and clubs, and only ex-patriates cared about it (see the fabled and now gone Yamanote Line Halloween Party). Now, things could not be more different. The last few years have seen the scariest night of the year take off in a big way here in The World’s Greatest Metropolis, evolving to become one of the largest cosplay displays on the planet. It is all about dressing up, sharing laughs and taking selfies with the other costumed revellers. With no issues regarding public drinking, the streets become one giant open-air nightclub!
Tonight, we were on Centre Gai in the heart of Shibuya with guests on a Maction Planet Tokyo Private Tour checking out the Tokyo Halloween fun. Last year, the volume of people here was so huge that the Hachiko Crossing was at times brought to a standstill, so this year the police were out in force to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. However, neither they nor the rain could stop the crowds and the fun.
