It’s that time of the year again: Shibuya set for Halloween party

Anime characters, ghouls and beasts started filtering into the scramble crossing in front of JR Shibuya Station in Tokyo on Oct. 29 ahead of the monster bash on Halloween.

The Shibuya Ward government has set up changing rooms and temporary lavatories for the crowds of costumed revelers expected in the area in the days until Oct. 31.

Extra police officers have been dispatched to Shibuya to prevent accidents or other problems, while the Tokyo metropolitan government is distributing garbage bags resembling jack-o’-lanterns, a symbol of Halloween.

The Halloween crowd around Shibuya Station has grown larger year by year.
