    Hello. Great site ! So happy to have found it. Moved to Manila from the U.S almost 2 years ago so an expat myself. While there are Halloween events here throughout the month of October, there’s nowhere to really go on Halloween day itself – much less anywhere to go trick or treating really. Traveling to Tokyo from the end of October and will be there for Halloween. We have a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. Any suggestions on a good place to take them for Halloween ? Also, we have a Maclaren twin stroller. Would that be conducive to walking in Tokyo or would be be better to have 2 singles ? Anyways, thanks for such an informative and helpful site.

    Best,
    Polly

      Hi Polly! Thanks for your message! The same places in this article will celebrate Halloween again this year. Harajuku Halloween is on Sunday 26th October 11am-7pm. Yoyogi Uehara Trick or Treat is on 31st October. I think these would be the best places to join, as they don’t require reservation and are easy to get to! Regarding the twin Maclaren stroller, this should be fine as long as it fits through the ticket gates at the train station. The regular ticket gates are 50-60cm wide, and the wide ticket gates are 90cm wide. It’s also a good idea to check where the elevators are at the train stations – if you can’t find the elevator, just ask the station staff for help. See my previous articles about how to ask for help up the stairs at the train station: https://www.tokyourbanbaby.com/2012/06/navigating-japan-with-a-pram-how-to-ask-for-help-up-stairs-in-train-stations.html

      Hope this helps and have a wonderful trip! xx Kate
