Tokyo has Won Halloween!

Halloween in Tokyo 2014

Halloween in Tokyo used to be a strictly gaijin affair, with a few hundred of us hijacking a Yamanote Line train for one trip around the city. But these days, the Japanese have taken full ownership of Halloween. They’re sexy, scary, and incredibly creative. This almost 10-minute video was all shot in one location, Shibuya Crossing and Center-gai, and features a bewildering array of costumes.

Blink and you’ll miss Voldemort, R2D2 and even Jesus. If you can get even close to all the cultural references, you’re a true otaku!
