Halloween Tokyo 2009

Halloween in Shibuya was pretty wild. As usual, the standard ‘nurse’ and ‘police officer’ sexy costumes were the number one choice amongst J-girls. Lots of guys were cartoon characters or video game heroes like Super Mario or Donkey Kong.

It was cool just hanging out on the streets and talking with random people. It’s funny how costumes make people feel more at ease to chat it up with a stranger.

For the most part Japanese costumes were sexy and fun while the majority of foreigner costumes were scary and gory.





















Michael Jackson was in the house! Get his 25th Anniversary of Thriller (CD+DVD) on Amazon












































Not all Japanese enjoy Halloween or anything involving foreigners for that matter. Apparently there was an anti-foreigner protest on the same night in Shinjuku just a couple train stops away. I heard from some people who were there that it wasn’t a huge ordeal, however the posting online makes it seem as if it was.

Let’s not let those idiots spoil all of the fun though!

    Sexy is right! I had an idea but didn’t know Tokyo would be that kind of party. I’m going in December. I hope xmas season will be as festive.

    You didn’t include the idiot American trouble makers. As an American it sucks when other Americans decide to create a scene, climb a light pole and chant “USA!” Can we revoke some passports?

  12. Billy says:

    You saw us? Kidding!

    Doesn’t sound like those guys have many brain cells.

  20. Dudelove says:

    Ahh… Halloween… no matter where in the world its celebrated its always the same. ’tis the only time of the year where chicks think dressing like a whore is ‘cute’… Seriously ladies, dress like that more often on other days of the year. We still think its cute… honest! :P

  21. Ridhuan says:

    Wow that must have been a great scene with all the costumes in a crowded street. I never seen anything like that in my country. I definitely go to Shibuya sometime. Keep posting the great scenes of Japan.

  25. Andy says:

    Hahahaha. I’m the guy with the Tai-yaki fish mask. Halloween in Shibuya was a blast this year. Thanks for taking/posting the pic! :)

  26. Wow, what a costumes.

    The only flaw I see is that they could work in Carnival or in a private party.

    Not many monsters to frighten us.

  27. Wonderful and fun pictures of your Halloween! I didn’t realize it is celebrated with such passion in Japan. The girls are all so pretty. No wonder you were out with your camera!! Were you dressed up and what was your costume?

    • Billy says:

      I didn’t dress up but I should have. I was too excited about shooting and it didn’t even cross my mind. :)

  28. Dumb Otaku says:

    I’ll be honest that looks like a lot more fun than what my Halloweens are like around here.

  29. Jatisrose says:
