Photo Blog - Halloween In Shibuya

The Japanese are notorious for their love of cosplay and dressing up as their favorite characters. I was lucky to experience Halloween on the streets of Shibuya in 2016. The costumes that I saw ran the gamut from cute to almost X-rated. It was completely and utterly insane, and I loved every second of it.

If you scroll to the bottom of this post I included a video that captures some of the events from that night.

Enjoy!
