Usually Halloween is such a big day for firms. They are busy trying to create “the special goods” which are only sold in a certain period of time.


Such as:
1)Pumpkin Rilakkuma

2) Trick or treat bags

Lately Japanese people have started to wear costume in Halloween, and there are several big costume parades in the big street such as Omotesandou.
1)Omotesandou costume parade 2008

2)Kawasaki costume parade 2008

The biggest difference of Halloween between Japan and the US is that Halloween for Japanese is “brighter” than for Americans.
If we use three words to describe Halloween, then for Japanese will be Halloween goods, pumpkin cakes, and cute costumes, but for American will be the costume party, Horror movies, and the Haunted House.
This is how firms have a huge market of Halloween goods although what they do is just put everything into a pumpkin.
