Happy Halloweeen in OKINAWA, JAPAN
Happy Halloween OKINAWA !!
Halloween season in Okinawa is pretty exciting. If you go to American village, you can see the wide variety of the high level costumes and make-ups. If you go to the Chatan Sunabe residential area near the Sunabe seawall you can see many of the local Okinawans going trick-or-treating to the American houses.
All this wasn`t a natural scene 15 years ago. The Halloween movement was not quite common as it is now. It all became a thing starting with a few Americans dressed up in there costumes in American Village which caught the eye of the Okinawan people and then became into a bigger event every year.
Now, this whole Halloween movement has grown not only in Okinawa but also throughout Japan, especially in Shibuya.
I think its interesting to see the American culture getting mixed with the Japanese culture.
Next month is November which means THANKS GIVING.
I hope everybody gets a nice home-warming dinner on that special day.
See you soon!
