The week leading up to Halloween has no doubt been incredible but because Halloween takes place on a Monday, a lot of the Halloween festivities took place on the weekend. Still, I had a feeling that people would be out on Halloween Day dressed up in costume and sure enough…I was right. Here are photos I took on Halloween Day (October 31, 2016) throughout Tokyo.
On October 30th, the 2016 Omotesando Halloween Pumpkin Parade took place.

So far, I noticed that restaurants, bakeries and […]

Originally planned, I was to travel to multiple countries in Europe as final vacation for 2016. But one thing that had gotten on my nerves was the fact that I didn’t cover so many locations in Tokyo in 2015. So, I decided to take on the Tokyo Ward Challenge for 2016.
