*CANCELLED* Halloween Peony Walk | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA
October 1 @ 08:00 - October 31 @ 17:00Free
Halloween Peony Walk has been cancelled in 2019 due to typhoon Hagibis – Peony Walk has had a few Halloween events annually for the last few years, but last year they stepped it up a notch. The main celebrations are on the weekend of October 26th and 27th (detailed below), but they have other events during the month and they already have the mall dressed up for Halloween.
UPDATE: the Peony Walk mall and the area of Hayamata where the mall is located, were very badly affected by typhoon Hagibis. Due to flooding on the ground (first) floor, Peony walk is closed indefinitely – staff have been told for as long as one month – and as such the Halloween events will not go ahead.
Halloween Peony Walk Decorations and Photo Spots
Since the end of September until October 31st there are many areas in Peony Walk with Halloween decorations. On the second floor there are two areas with Halloween photo spots and props where kids can don Halloween outfits and take a photo in a Halloween Setting.
Pumpkin decorations on the first floor. Last year they had a guess how many pumpkins event, but they don’t seem to be doing it this year.
Halloween Castle and Pumpkin lantern
There is a Halloween Castle on Saturday October 26th from 10 am to 5 pm. It costs 300 yen for 15 minutes of play. On the same day they have a pumpkin craft which costs 200 yen.
Halloween Peony Walk Parade and Costume Contest
The Halloween parade and costume contest is for children aged between 3 and 12 years old. The parade is within the mall. The schedule is changed this year with the contest at the later time of 3 pm and the parade at 4 pm. There is a trophy for the winner and another for the runner up of this stage costume contest. If you would like to participate in the costume contest you need to register in advance, by using the QR code in the photo above.
Several of the restaurants in Peony Walk have Halloween themed food for the month of October. For example, Mr Donuts on the 1st floor have their annual Halloween donuts. Baskin Robbins on the 2nd floor have a slime ice-cream with Halloween decoration. Baruc Cafe have a selection of Autumn and Halloween desserts.
