With October coming to a close, the atmosphere in Japan is building up to one of the favorite events for adults in the country - Halloween! While it is very rare to see kids trick-or-treating in the streets, adults in Japan can enjoy costume parties at clubs in the city and even in the streets. The famous Shibuya crossing Halloween party in Tokyo will try to overcome the over-the-top raucous behavior by the thousands of revelers that gather and celebrate around the station by banning alcohol starting from this year.
Eric from Seattle (and long-time resident of Japan) joins the podcast to enlighten Ben and Burke about the costume competitions that take place in nightclubs around Sapporo City, where contest winners can walk away with ¥100,000 in prize money, and all of the other fun ways to celebrate Halloween in Japan! Enjoy the show!
