How To Celebrate Halloween In Tokyo? You Dance Freaky ParaPara!

on Oct. 18, 2009 by

Tokyo has one of the best Halloween parties, and what better than to celebrate it dressed as Cloud from Final Fintasy while dancing synchronized to Eurobeat & Hyper Techno music at the local ParaPara party at A-Life Nightclub.

Luckily my last parapara party in Tokyo went out with a bang. It was Halloween in Japan and many people dressed up for the occasion.

It was surprising to see in how many places it was unacceptable to wear scary uniforms. Quite a few Japanese people consider it a hellish festivity introduced by the Western world.

There was even a rally against Halloween and foreigners organized by the right-wing party in Tokyo at Shinjuku subway station. Which I can understand if you going home from a 10 hour work day and then get confronted by a bunch of crazy drunk foreigners in Halloween costumes on the metro.

Dancing to parapara in halloween costumes the entire night is hard to beat.

I decided to go to the SEB Halloween party @ Alife Nightclub in Roppongi.

To adapt better to Japanese society I decided it was best to keep my costume packed until I reached the venue. I brought my Cloud Strife costume which I purchased in Canada a few months earlier.

It was a wicked party but sad at the same time. I was sad to say goodbye to all the great people I met throughout the past 3 months in the para dance scene.
