This past weekend we celebrated Halloween in Japanese style. The neighbouring town of Sunagawa is known for its farming and they grow many North American pumpkins. The town annually puts on a Halloween event where they decorate pumpkins and put them around town. The local foreign English teachers also participate and interact with the children and have fun. The event tried to recreate "real" North American Halloween by having local stores give out candy; all the kids had the opportunity to make their own costume and walk around town and get treats. Taiga bought his costume ahead a time; this year he decide to be his favourite superhero Ultraman!
