Autumn has arrived. This year has been very hard for everyone in the world and it is difficult to see a ray of hope right now, but I truly hope our positive spirits won’t be taken away by the ruthless virus.

This time, the theme is Halloween. Hopefully, these pictures will put a smile on your face.

Japanese people also celebrate Halloween. The celebration actually mimics the one in America. This event became more prominent after 2000 when Tokyo Disneyland hosted its first Halloween attraction.

As in America, all sorts of Halloween goods are for sale, but generally, children in Japan do not do the routinely trick-or-treat. Mostly the young people use this occasion to dress in costume, often as their anime favorite characters, a practice called Cosplay. They walk around certain areas of the city such as Akihabara or Harajuku.  Cosplay is so popular in Japan that some people don't just do it on Halloween, but will dress up for fun at any time.
