You can currently see plenty of halloween displays, food and goods for sale all over Japan, often in the least expected places, but the peak of Halloween is almost over. Halloween goods are sold as early as the end of August in Japan, but they also come off the shelves earlier than expected. You can already see Halloween goods being discounted in some of the larger foreign stores, such as Babies-r-us, a sure indication that they will be removed shortly. Similarly, the 100 yen shops typically cease to restock their halloween wares from the middle of October.
Apart from the costumes and knick knacks that are sold during September in Japan, you can also buy seasonal halloween food.
Now is the time to get a snap of the various halloween displays as chances are they will be gone by Halloween day.
