Hallowe~~~~en in Japan!

Last week I experienced my first Japanese party–a Halloween party at one of the dorms of Nanzan University.

Let’s see if it’s something like an American dress-up party :)

Halloween just got very popular in Japan the past two years. People treat it as a dress-up day, without really knowing the meaning behind Halloween. :)

The difference might be, Japanese students don’t really dress-up like these to school, like we might do in America. There might not be a rule but I guess they don’t want to scare the professors.
