Time Out says
The costumed madness that is Halloween in Shibuya over the past few years finally forced the local authorities to take action in 2016. Parts of Dogenzaka and Bunkamura-dori near the scramble crossing were closed to cars and other heavy vehicles, letting revellers party and snap selfies without having to worry too much about being caught up in traffic. The deal is set to repeat this year, with a bit of central Shibuya (details TBC) reserved for pedestrians in the evenings (6pm-10pm) between October 27 and 31. Wear your best, sharpen your elbows and get ready for one mighty crush.
