And now for a flashback to more than a quarter century ago. Here are some pictures from a big Halloween party at my apartment in Musashi Nitta, near the Tama River, in 1988 while working at Fujitsu.
I like to think I started the tradition of Halloween celebrations in Japan with my first rooftop Halloween party in 1984, in “Exotic Kamata.” After the party, we walked to the station in costume and passersby were very surprised. One poor high school student was so shocked he fell over! Fortunately he was laughing afterwards.
Does anybody recognize themselves from these 1988 photos?
