A round up of all the Halloween Events, for kids, in Saitama Prefecture in 2023. Most of the Halloween events are back in 2023, but there are still a few that remain cancelled. Such as, the annual Kisai Halloween event. Kazo City have confirmed that they will not be having that popular Halloween event this year, for the fourth year in a row. Below is the round up of events, below that you will also find a list of places with Halloween photo spots.

Halloween Photo Spots 2023
A lot of the locations that claim to have a daily halloween ‘event’, actually just have Halloween photo props that you can use freely. However, occasionally you will find an attraction that actually does have a proper event. Such as, Musashi no Mura Family Land on the Green that has a Halloween candy scoop event daily in the month of October.
Some of the places that have Halloween photo props for the month of October include:
- Musashi no Mura (Kazo)
- Saitama Children’s Zoo (Higashimatsuyama)
- Heuvel Cafe (Higashimatsuyama)
- Peony Walk (Higashimatsuyama)
- Cocoon City (Saitama City)
- Ario (Ageo)
- ⇗Tomioka Kominkan (Tokorozawa)
- ⇗Fukaya Hanazono Premium Outlets (Fukaya)
- ⇗Lalaport Shinmisato (Misato)
- ⇗Kawaguchi Green Center (Kawaguchi)
There are plenty more, but these are ones I’ve been able to confirm personally! You can generally find Halloween photo spots in malls. If I get a chance, I will add some more.
Kennys Village (camping grounds) in Hanno also run Halloween events every year. Unfortunately, Seibu Yuuenchi seems to have dropped their annual Halloween event. And as I mentioned above, Kisai Halloween is not in 2023. In addition, as far as I know, Warabi Halloween World, Iruma Halloween Contest, Kitamoto Halloween, Higashimatsuyama Halloween Walk and Omiya Halloween have not been on since the pandemic began.
