A bunch of friends are gathered for a Halloween party?

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your spooky celebrations! And what better place to find inspiration for a party than Japan Halloween decorations. Japan is known for holding popular events for Halloween. Places like Tokyo DisneySea, Tokyo DisneyLand and Sanrio Puroland Tokyo all hold kawaii Halloween events throughout October and on Halloween day. 

Although Japan has adopted many traits from Halloween traditions, like Halloween costumes, both kawaii and kowai (cute and scary), limited edition Halloween foods and Halloween parades. But one thing that hasn’t really caught on is trick or treating. So, instead of going door knocking, people celebrate fright night by going to a street party, or by hosting one!

Where to find Japan Halloween decorations

Daiso 

Daiso is the most well known 100 yen shop (0.70 USD) in Japan. The store offers a massive variety of unique and quickie products, boasting over 70,000 different items in their range. Daiso’s array of items spans over kitchen goods, lifestyle items, snacks, cosmetics, DIY goods, and stationery. And of course when there are seasonal and holiday items sprinkled in! During spring Daiso released an expulsion of pastel coloured sakura (cherry blossom) seasonal items. Later in the year, even as early as the end of August Daiso starts to release their winter holiday event items. Firstly starting with Halloween, then Christmas, and finally New Years! 

This means months in advance you can start planning your kawaii Halloween party! But what exactly does Daiso carry that will help you celebrate Halloween? First of all Daiso is a licensed retailer of Disney items, so they can sell an abundance of Mickey Mouse and friends items. This covers flags, garlands, masking tape, hanging decorations, window stickers, and cutlery. Beyond Disney the shelves are filled with pumpkins, skeletons, hanging lights, signs, and ornaments. Daiso is the best place to visit for super cute decorations and budget friendly party supplies!

Don Quijote

Don Quijote pronounced “Don key-hoh-tey” is one of the top tier stores to visit in Japan. It’s known for its highly stacked shelves, tightly packed rows, loud music and flashing lights. Don Quijote provides Japanese styled products, souvenirs, food items and of course seasonal items.

Loft

Loft has 117 stores scattered across Japan, and is known for being the ‘lifestyle specialist’ store. They stock goods like stationery, watches and accessories, health products, homewares and variety goods. If you could go to any of the stores in Japan, we suggest going to the Shibuya, Tokyo store. This 7 floor layout is a treasure trove of goodies that could put a smile on any buyer’s face! The seasonal display is placed on the ground floor, which is particularly worth a visit for all Halloween treats! Loft specializes in curating festive items that have a fun Japanese culture twist on them.

It’s packed with all sorts of cute knick knacks for the home. But, one area that makes Tokyu Hands unique is the very interesting party supply section.
