Fukuoka Halloween Guide 2020

Costumes, jack o’ lanterns and trick-or-treat – it’s Halloween! In Japan, Halloween is usually a paradise for cosplayers (costume players). Usually held every October 31st in celebration of a good autumn harvest in America, children and adults alike also enjoy dressing up in costumes. They also carve pumpkins for decorations, and children go around the neighborhood dressed as witches or ghosts for trick-or-treat.

When October rolls around in Fukuoka, Halloween spirit fills the air with the shops and window displays decorated in black and orange. With it comes a number of Halloween parties, and we’ve compiled a list of our recommended Halloween events. There are events not only on October 31 but on other dates, too. Why not dress up and go twice or thrice?

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, event organizers have created rules such as requiring masks to be worn. Please cooperate with the organizer’s requests and be safe!
