Thanks to Halloween and the tradition of dressing up to be someone else on this day. It is because it is one day in a year when the young ones and young at hearts got to exercise their wonderful sense of magical imagination.
I have always been the “I don’t care about Halloween” type of a person. But my Halloween this year is totally different! I spent this year’s Halloween in Osaka, Japan. And I had a blast!
It was the night I got to be someone I was not. I got to be The Riddler! It was the night that no soul stopped me from looking weird and acting strangely. It was one night that I just took all my cares away. And the best part of it is that I got to party with some of my monster pamangkins (nieces & nephews)!
What is so awesome about the Halloween in Osaka is that herds of people wear costumes for the occasion. The array of costumes are just unbelievable! And they would walk the streets of Osaka in a very cheery mood creating an awesome street-party-like atmosphere!
Me and my pamangkins, in our respective costumes, walked and went to the Triangle Park known as Sankaku Koen where people in their amazing costumes converge to see and be seen. A lot of people say that walking the streets of Osaka in costume during Halloween will be incomplete if you won’t pass by Sankaku Koen.
One extra ordinary thing about this Halloween tradition in this park is that there seem to be no planning, no advertisement, no organization nor program being followed. But everyone just turns up to this park in their costume so as to amaze and be amazed!
After witnessing the colorful, amazing and unbelievable costumes in Sankaku Koen, me and my pamangkins went to Balabushka – a dance club – where we all danced our Halloween cares away!
Kakaibang gemba! Kakamangha!
