4. Disney Halloween
If you are Disney fan, don’t miss this Disney Halloween!
It’s taken place until October 31 (Mon).
There is a show called Super Duper Jumpin’ Time, which children would love to see.
You can also try to enjoy Haunted Mansion ‘Holiday Nightmare’ or taking pictures with Disney Characters and decorations.
Tokyo has lots of Halloween events, but those running events are taken place outside Tokyo.
If you go to Shibuya scramble crossing area, you would see crazy people!
Some go to Halloween events, while others show off their costumes and performance.
This area is always crowded but it would be packed and hard to move between October 28(Sat) and 29(Sun).
If you just want to go shopping or not participating in Halloween events, you might want to avoid those dates.
Also don’t forget to bring your garbage back! Don’t throw on the street (whenever there is an event, people leave garbage behind and make city dirty… so please be responsible and considerate).
