Halloween Peony Walk
– Peony Walk
have been celebrating for the last couple of years, but this year they’ve stepped it up a notch. The main celebrations are on the weekend of October 27th and 28th (detailed below), but they have other events during the month and they already have the mall dressed up for Halloween.
Halloween 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.
Guess how many pumpkins
On the first floor (ground floor) they have a couple of pumpkin displays. The one nearest the Information desk is also a pumpkin guessing quiz. If you guess the correct number of pumpkins you will receive a 1000 yen shopping voucher for Peony Walk (if there are more than 30 correct answers they will draw 30 names), which will be distributed by post after October 31st. To enter you just have to write your name and address and your guess on a postcard and pop it in the box provided.
Alice’s Mirror Treasure Maze
A pop up kids activity will be available on October 27th from 10 am to 5 pm on the first (ground) floor Peony Court. Search for Alice’s dropped treasure in her mirror wonderland. It costs 300 yen per child, but if you have a Peony walk kid’s club card it is only 200 yen per child. Children under 3 years old must be accompanied into the maze by an adult.
On the same day they have a “giant colorful” cotton candy event.
