Ghosts, Goblins and CosPlayers Come out To Play!
Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea are spook central for all things Halloween from the first week of September right through October 31st. The decorations, parades, souvenirs, sweets, and treats have made this the most popular (and profitable) time of the year for the Tokyo Disney Parks. But there's more to it than that.
During the two-month long Halloween event, visitors are allowed on specific days to walk around the park in full-on Cosplay costumes – as long as they are Disney themed and not too revealing.
And come they do.
Japanese higher education and society in general traditionally praise and encourage conformity and obedience. Imagination is often not considered a cultural imperative in adults.
But of course, people want more. They want to be creative.
Halloween lets them shine!
And we all want that...
