Happy Halloween everyone! 🙂
While you’re all putting on your zombie and Nicki Minaj costumes, I thought it would be interesting to look at how the Japanese celebrate Halloween.
Japan is rapidly becoming influenced by the Western world. During the past decade, the main cities of Japan have started to cash in on Halloween celebrations with major department store and restaurant decorations and not to mention, a TON of merchandise. Here is a glimpse of Halloween in Japan:
Only in Japan…if you haven’t seen Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki, I suggest you go down to the video store and rent it. Now.

So, how are you celebrating Halloween?
