Halloween costumers and cosplayers of all kinds gathered in Shibuya on on Oct. 31, 2016. Halloween in Japan is fast becoming a major seasonal/commercial event, on par with Valentine's Day. Halloween merchandise has been taking off in Japan.

Ironically, nobody said "trick or treat" and I didn't see anyone giving out Halloween candy. (No one carried candy bags either.) Japan invents its own Halloween (and Valentine's Day).

There's no organizer, no sponsors, no set event time, but it still happens. Just a spontaneous, massive street gathering. Unbelievable.

The main attraction for these costumers is that they meet other costumers and take photos together.

For the first time this year, the police wisely closed off a few major roads around Shibuya Station for Halloween. Even then, the road to 109 and Dogenzaka were filled with people.
