Halloween In Tokyo!

The BEST place to celebrate Halloween has to definitely be Japan, where the adults seem to have way more fun than children do. In Tokyo, people either congregate to Shibuya or to Roponggi for Halloween. Last year I’d trawled the streets of Roponggi, so this year I decided to go to Shibuya!

I had an idea of what to wear for Halloween, but I actually forgot to buy a costume, so I ended up hastily putting on a lot of liner on my face as my mask. I look a bit boring – but forget me, look at all the other people who have crazy outfits!
