Japanese Halloween has a unique style of Japan, especially in Shibuya, Tokyo.
Halloween is a festival held every October 31 to celebrate the autumn harvest. During the period of Halloween, besides the souls of the ancestors, some evil spirits that have bad influence to people will also come to the world. In order to drive away these evil spirits, the children will disguise them as witches, monsters, werewolf and other terrible things to make evil inspiration to fear so as to drive them away. This custom is the origin of Halloween.
The masked children will go around the street, knock on the door house to house, and say "trick or treat" to ask for candy. This is the traditional scene of Halloween.
Of course, there are traditional Halloween events in Japan, but the most eye-catching is the Halloween of Shibuya,Tokyo.
