Halloween Trains in Japan

Halloween Trains

Although Halloween is a holiday originating in the west, these days the Japanese get pretty into it as well! Along with costumes, candy, and haunted houses, even some Japanese trains get into the spirit too.

Running near Mt. Akagi in Gunma Prefecture, this small, rural railway has trains decorated with pumpkins and ghosts from mid-September through October 31st.

costume contest on a train

On October 25th of this year, the Tokyu Railways' Toyoko Line will have a costume contest inside a train! The train will be well-decorated, of course, and will end in Shibuya Station so the party can continue even after disembarking.

haunted train

The Randen Line, an above-ground train that runs from the heart of Kyoto city out west to the Arashiyama district, has a yokai, or "monster" themed train! Passengers are encouraged to dress in costume (for a discounted fare!) and the train will act like a very small, two-car haunted house. The only catch: this train runs in August! Scary stories and haunted houses are popular in summer in Japan; the chill that runs down your spine is supposed to help you keep cool during the hot weather.
