Happy Halloween every one! This is once a year in Halloween Day. Are you having a party or something like that tonight? It’s usual for people many countries to celebrate this day tonight: throwing a party, visiting theme parks, out to a movie, etc. In Japan, unfortunately, celebration is very rare. Yet, it doesn’t mean that Japanese people do not pay as much regard to the festival as westerners do.
Since a month ago, I have been seeing heaps of things around related to Halloween. Toys, chocolate, and many products have their tailored Halloween version. Some lower graders in school today wore costumes and took some photos. Shopfronts packed with Halloween displays of Jack-O’-Lantern, witch’s hat….. Halloween is everywhere in Japan.
Sorry, there’s no trick or treating, Jack-O’-Lantern, and demon’s fork for the general public.
