Japan embraces Halloween like nowhere else, turning October into a month-long opportunity to feast on pumpkin treats and dress up like your favourite characters. Costume parties, parades and Halloween-themed afternoon teas are just some of the great ways to celebrate this holiday. You could also visit theme parks around Japan, most of which are putting on special decorations and events befitting the season of ghosts, ghouls and zombies.

From Disneyland and Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo to Osaka’s Universal Studios Japan, here are the theme parks where you can get into the spooky spirit with Halloween-inspired treats, attractions and events this autumn.

Trick or treat

  • Attractions
  • Theme parks
  • Tama-Center

Sanrio Puroland is awash with orange and purple colours for Halloween. And it’ll host a new show at the theatre, where you’ll be separated into two teams and challenge each other in a game or dance battle. The first floor of the theme park will feature a ‘Trick or Treat’ illumination show – there’s even a stall for kids to win sweet treats. Of course, you’ll get to meet and greet Halloween versions of Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll, Pom Pom Purin and friends.

For the grown ups, come after hours for a meal at the Vampire Butler Café (from ¥7,500) hosted by immersive horror experience producers Obaken. Hello Kitty and Daniel will be making an appearance in their best Halloween outfit while you enjoy spooky-looking dishes and desserts.

From September 9 to November 1
