LWIF EP24: Happy Halloween from Japan!

Halloween in Japan is starting to get more popular, but it’s not exactly like Halloween in North America. This is what registering to go “trick-or-treating” looks like.

To be very clear, the halloween shown in the video is not a typical Japanese Halloween event. This is a special event put on by an English school that organized local families together to provide a Halloween-like experience. For most Japanese kids, I’m fairly sure they have no concept of trick-or-treating. I have seen some Halloween activities at daycares where they have decorations and give out candy, but at Aiko and Shin’s Elementary school, there’s no sign of Halloween.
