     This article is written about since when was Halloween so popular in Japan. And the reason is divided into four. It is Theme parks introduce “Happy Halloween”, Cosplay culture, and Children learning English, and Japanese national character. Also basically, Japanese Halloween is a fun celebration, purely for amusement value and without cultural subtext.


     I think so too, a big part of Halloween’s popularity could be attributed to “fancy dress”. Because when I was high school student, some of my friend wore a cosplay at school on Halloween’s day. They changed the mummy man and vampire. Also some of my friend go to Universal Studios Japan while wearing Cosplay. So I’m looking for to see cosplay on Halloween.
