Kawasaki Halloween 2018

Outside of theme parks, this street festival in Kawasaki celebrating its 22nd year is recognized as the first Halloween party in Japan. Started in 1996 with a parade of 150 people and approximately 500 spectators, a decade later Kawasaki’s Halloween festivities drew 2,600 parade participants and a crowd of 120,000.

The main visual for this year’s theme, dubbed “kawahalloism,” is titled “Dance x Art Make x Kawasaki.” Premier dancers styled by leading make up artists and hair stylists lead this year’s gorgeous and mysterious Halloween Parade. Register online early to participate in the parade.
