These are scary and troubling times. It’s like the world is one big haunted house. But cheer up! Head on over to Harajuku/Omotesando this weekend for a wholesome Halloween parade. Started 25 years ago by Harajuku Kiddy Land, it has grown from children mostly from the international community, but now incorporates many from Japanese families. Above are some photos from last year’s parade.
