Halloween in Japan
Halloween wasn’t traditionally celebrated in Japan as it is in the United States. But Halloween in Japan has grown in popularity thanks to holiday events at the Tokyo Disneyland, Sanrio Puroland and Universal Studios Japan theme parks. Today, many Japanese stores get into the spirit of Halloween by selling colorful decorations, costumes, and sweets to those wanting to observe the holiday.
Halloween in Japan is mostly geared toward adults who want to dress in costume.
Trick-or-treating from house to house isn’t particularly popular for children in Japan.
“Kosupure,” which is the Japanese word for cosplay (or costume play), is popular among Japanese youth at Halloween.
