Tokyo’s Best Halloween Parties 2022

Covid is on the decline here in Tokyo, and finally tourists are allowed back into Japan. That only means one thing, the return of large-scale Tokyo Halloween parties in 2022. And we don’t know about you, but we have severely missed Tokyo’s epic and wild Halloween events.

Despite the pandemic, 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).

Six Tokyo Halloween

To help our fellow Tokyo Night Owls, we have put together a list of the Best Halloween Parties of 2022. Before heading out, here are some useful Tokyo Night Owl tips:

  1. Wear A Mask: All nightclubs will require this for entry. Try customizing your mask to fit your costume!
  2. Nightclubs have ghoulishly long lines. To avoid this, we recommend arriving at the club no later than 11 pm.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. Note that Shibuya’s convenience stores will not sell alcohol.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Be Cautious. The coronavirus is mostly behind us, but clubs will still require masks for guests before they can enter the nightclub.

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.
