Although Halloween originated in the West, the Japanese simply love festivals too much to miss out on the fun, holding a variety of exclusive Halloween celebrations and activities every year. In addition to the already famous “Halloween in Shibuya, Tokyo” and “Universal Osaka Halloween” festivities, a number of events are scheduled to take place in Kyushu as well. Here are a few events in Kyushu that you do not want to miss out on.
1. Huis Ten Bosch
Huis Ten Bosch, reveling with Wally for the weekend of Halloween located in Nagasaki, Huis Ten Bosch is a European-style theme park. One of several theme parks in Japan, Huis Ten Bosch also hosts various Halloween activities. This year, Huis Ten Bosch is hosting events such as “look for Wally”, “dress-up competition” and many other exciting events and activities. I would not want to miss out on this if I were you.
