Tokyo’s Best Halloween Parties 2019

Halloween is right around the corner, and Tokyo’s nightclubs are gearing up for one of the biggest nights of the year.

Over the past ten years, Tokyo has seen a dramatic growth in interest for Halloween. Halloween candy is now available at most grocery stores, department buildings decorate with jack-o-lanterns, and families celebrate from home (now commonly referred to now as HaroPa ハロパ). More famous are the wildly huge Halloween street parties that have been receiving international mass media attention year after year (for better or worse).

2019 is gearing up to be even bigger with more Halloween parties, costume contests, and outrageous Shibuya street parties.

To help our fellow Tokyo Night Owls, we have put together a list of the Best Halloween Parties of 2019. Before heading out, here are some useful Tokyo Night Owl tips:

  1. Nightclubs have ghoulishly long lines. To avoid this, we recommend arriving at the club no later than 11 pm.
  2. Buy your costume beforehand. You don’t want to be stuck wearing a Pikachu snuggie. The Mega Donkey Hotte in Shibuya and Roppongi have a wide selection of Halloween costumes. Also, Amazon.jp has dozens of options with next day shipping. Be warned though, Halloween costumes in Japan are typically overpriced.
  3. Pre-funk. Lines at the bar on Halloween can be hellish. Get the party started with some conbini 9% chu his or a canned hi-ball.
  4. Avoid the Roppongi dumps. There are loads of small bars masquerading as nightclubs in Roppongi. And during Halloween, with the long lines for the hot nightclubs, you may be inclined to hit these places up. Don’t! They will be packed, sleazy, and possibly dangerous.
  5. Arrived dressed up and ready to party. It may seem odd to wear a costume on a train, but in Tokyo, its commonplace during Halloween. Nothing worse than having to find a corner or bathroom in Shibuya where you can get into costume.
  6. Be cautious in Shibuya It may seem odd to wear a costume on a train, but in Tokyo, its commonplace during Halloween. Nothing worse than having to find a corner or bathroom in Shibuya where you can get into costume.
  7. Bonus tip for the fellas:
    Skip the scary or bloody makeup, and stick to cute costumes. Japanese girls will be more inclined to chat up a handsome Mario than a decomposing zombie.

8. Party on the Shibuya Streets?

Date: October 25, 26, 27, & 31, typically starting at 10 pm till morning.
Location: Shibuya Streets
How Much: FREE

Let’s be honest… the Shibuya street’s Halloween chaos was the best party in Tokyo! 300,000 Japanese and non-Japanese crowded around Shibuya’s iconic scramble crossing on Halloween last Oct. 31 and the weekend prior.

But a large number of incidents last year, including the overturning of a small truck that led to the arrests and sexual harassment, have led officials to ban drinking on some streets.

The ban on drinking alcohol on the streets will occur on October 25, 26, 27, and 31, starting at 6 p.m. and continuing until 5 am. Below is a full map of zones that will not allow booze.

It is hard to predict what will happen this year, but we imagine there will be a strong police presence. If you do intend to celebrate on the streets, please party responsibly and keep an eye on your belongings.

Tokyo Night Owl Tip:
As much fun as it was in the past, the best bet for this year is to stick to the nightclubs for a Halloween party experience.
