Halloween might not be a traditional Japanese holiday, but that doesn’t stop Japan from celebrating as if it were. People in costume – often on their way to Halloween parties – are noticeable on the streets of Harajuku and Shibuya during October weekends.
On this final weekend before Halloween, we headed out to the area around Shibuya Station to snap people in costume. Beyond the awesome visuals, we find that dressed-up people on their way to Halloween parties tend to be in very good moods. That means that we have a lot of fun taking pictures (and making new friends). We hope that you’ll enjoy looking at these Halloween street snaps as much as we enjoyed shooting them!

Thank-you and Happy Halloween to all of the nice people who let us photograph them in costume!
