Halloween in Japan – Tokyo Costume Street Party 渋谷 ハロウィン

Amazing costumes, tens of thousands of people, and lots of fun at Tokyo’s massive 2014 Halloween costume street party!

Happy Halloween from Japan everyone!!! Please share this video with your friends if you like it!

Halloween has exploded in popularity in Japan in the last few years, and this year’s Shibuya Halloween street party was the biggest and most insane that we’ve ever seen. The entire areas around Shibuya Station, the Shibuya Scramble, and Shibuya Center Street were packed with people in costumes from afternoon until well after midnight. We spent all day and night shooting to bring the fun directly to you!

Japan is the birthplace of cosplay, so people here go all out when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. The costumes ranged from lots of zombie Disney characters (Snow White was especially popular) to horror movie and video game icons (Silent Hill nurses galore), to full on Comiket-style cosplay groups straight out of anime and manga (lots of One Piece) to random funny stuff (a Facebook Like, The Mona Lisa).

In addition to this video, we’ll be posting hundreds of Japanese Halloween costume pictures on Flickr here:

If you are a fan of costumes, cosplay, or just dressing up, please consider visiting Japan during the Halloween season. You won’t find anywhere in the world where people have more fun with this holiday!

All of the clips in our 2014 Japan Halloween costume street party video were shot on the streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya neighborhood either Halloween afternoon/night or the weekend before Halloween.

We want to send out a big big “Thank You!” to every single person who allowed us to video them, and also to all of the fun friendly people we met on the street during the Halloween season in Tokyo.

Happy Halloween and please subscribe to the TokyoFashion YouTube channel for more fun from Japan:
