Halloween Food in Japan

Hi everyone!

We’re back in Japan now after spending a week in Hawaii, and it seems like everything has changed. It’s no longer sweltering hot here. It’s cool outside. We can wear jackets and sweaters! It’s my favourite temperature!

Not awkward product placement time: it’s cold enough now for our new Spudgy and Meemers hoodies now available on our store. Get them while you can! They’re so snuggly and lovely :D

Back to the topic of the video, we’re amazed at how gungho Japan is for Halloween. This is going to be our first Halloween in Japan, and we really don’t know what to expect. When we were getting off the airplane, the flight attendant had a bag of Halloween candy for everyone to pick at as they left. I thought it was just a quirk of the attendant, but I was so wrong. It feels like every store has Halloween themed stuff now. We showed you just some Halloween food specials, but there are decorations everywhere. At Don Quixote, which is one of the best stores in Japan, if not THE best, they’ve put all of their Halloween costumes on the main floor right at the front entrance, and also their cashiers are in costume. IT’S SO WONDERFUL!

I’m sorry if this is boring to you. Korea didn’t do Halloween like this. I don’t remember Canada being this passionate about Halloween, either (though I haven’t seen any Halloween decorations on houses here like I did in Canada). For real though, I’m a bit confused as to how much themed candy is being sold here. The packages we sold you look like the Halloween candy packages I’m used to. But if people aren’t giving out the candy for trick or treating, is everyone just buying the candy and doing the Stawski family tradition of turning off their lights and eating them in silence?

Also, we talked about the Baskin Robbins crazy video. Here’s the link to it. It’s so bad it’s good. I hope you love it as much as we do.

Anyhow, like we mentioned, it’s a shame that Trick or Treating isn’t big here, but to keep in the spirit of Trick or Treating, we want to give you, our lovely viewers, some special Halloween Candy from Japan. Let us know what you’re dressing up as for Halloween and we’ll pick one of you and mail you some candy! It’ll be kind of like reverse Halloween, because someone will knock on your door and give it to you. At least, they should. They better not just dump it on your front door and ring the doorbell and bail.

Otherwise, if you’d like to see some more footage from today, we’ve got extra scenes below. Check em out!

  1. I think it would be fun to dress up as the creepy deer from Luhan’s Lu video! But actually, this year I’m dressing up as Jem from Jem and the Holograms! (I have a pink wing from being Princess Carolyn from Bojack Horseman last year that I wanted to re use).

    Great video! That spicy ice cream sounds great!

  2. HI MARTINA! HI SIMON! Me and my boyfriend would dress up as …. YOU GUYS!!! I would be Martina and my boyfriend would be Simon. I would paint in my arms the same tattoos as Martina has, dye my hair just like her and my boyfriend would have a fake beard, a cap and would be eating all the candy that Simon loved in your videos so far!!!!! Happy Halloween!!! Greetings from Portugal :) we love you guys!!!

  3. I think that I would come to your house dressed up as Jonghyun from the Ring Ding Dong video.

  4. Japan has such an amazing Halloween spirit!
    I would probably be lazy and trick or treat as Green Cap Lady (rip of ladies Lugi costume), a costume I saw for sale last year at the Asakusa Don Quijote.

    My sister and I laughed so hard because our friend sewed us the exact same costumes for Anime North.

  5. Husband’s and my costumes will be in the bottom of our household good shipment. Will be spending our first night in Korea on Halloween.

  6. Instead of making my own costume, I answered an emergency call from my sister one state over and got roped into making a huntress of Artemis costume for my niece. Since I now don’t have time to make something new for myself, I’ll be raiding my closet for this year’s costume. Probably something on a masquerade theme. The one time of year it helps to have grown up in a family that loves their theatrics!

  7. Hm, I haven’t gone trick-or-treating in years, probably since I was 15 or so? I think it’d be really cool to do something with steampunk, but make it original and include Halloween elements so it’s special for trick-or-treating. Because it’s been so cold and rainy in Michigan during Halloween the last few years, I would opt in for pants, a blouse, and some sort of cool jacket that fits the theme as opposed to a skirt or dress sort of outfit. Although it’d be colder, it would be cool to do a zombie-steampunk outfit, so rip up certain parts of the clothing to go with some zombie makeup. I’d probably put my hair in low pigtails and bush it out, make it uneven, and dye it partly to give it a cool effect. For props, I can see a really mechanical(?)-looking gun. I’d probably do something with a really neat hat that is lopsided and torn, to match the clothes. Okay, maybe I’m too in the mood for The Walking Dead to come back on! Also, that commercial was amazing. I LOVE it!

  8. I wish more places in the U.S. did more elaborate things for Halloween like Japan does ._. Anyways, this year I’ll be dressing up as T.O.P. from his Doom Dada video. I’m donning the blue suit, with a giant inflatable microphone strapped to my back!

  9. It would be so fun to make a Spudgy Samurai costume. I love cosplay and making costumes, but fuzzy costumes are so hard to make! I made a Sully costume (from Monster’s Inc.) for my husband…and I dressed up as Boo. I swear I had fake fur all over my apartment. It looked like I had slaughtered a pack of stuffed animals. It even got up my nose!

    This year, I’m not making a Hallowe’en costume, but am trying to finish up my Dark Souls costume in time for a convention in a couple of weeks. Have a spectacularly spooky Hallowe’en!

  10. I am dressing as One Punch Man for Halloween. I’ve got my bald cap, I’ve dyed a white shirt and pants yellow, and I have red boots and gloves. Just need to practice my bland face.

  11. If I were trick or treating at your door, I would probably be dressed as G-Dragon because let’s be real here, who can refuse giving G-Dragon candy?
    The new Eat Your Sushi Squad merch looks awesome. And I really love your couple jackets in the beginning of the video.

  12. If I come trick-or-treating at your door, I would dress up as a Sailor Scout with Cloud’s Buster sword, Spudgy’s blue hair and Meemer’s flabby belly. And to complete the look, I’ll wear Martina’s all-time favorite fashion statement, the Turtle Neck. So I’m gonna be a SAILOR SCOUT WITH BUSTER SWORD, BLUE HAIR AND FAT BELLY IN A TURTLE NECK. Btw I’m a guy so go ahead and picture that hahahah! Simon and Martina might question their existence when they see that.

  13. I think if I were trick and treating and came to your house I’d be dressed up as a broken porcelain doll because this was how I met you guys for the first time! Then you’d be able to bring the pick up line “you look familiar. have we met / seen you somewhere before?” and I’d roll down my sexy window and say “yeaah gurrl can I buy you a draaank?!” ;)

    On a different note: the hoodies look amazing! I already ordered one and can’t wait to receive the package!

  14. Oh my gosh, Halloween in Japan looks so fun. And I really, really want one of the hoodies. I’ll have to order one asap. But, this halloween I plan on dressing up as Alice from Alice in wonderland because I was actually just diagnosed with Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (yes it’s totally a real thing) after a 8 years of having undiagnosed daily headaches and strange sensations. So it’s more of a symbol than actually liking Alice in Wonderland. But Alice is cute so it’s okay~! Cause it’s nice to have answers and all of that. Plus I am slightly amused by the whole thing so it’s a good way to keep positive! I love watching your videos and I always look forward to seeing you guys upload.

  15. Big art fan here, there’s this obscure digital artist that I follow. She has a demon character named Belial that I practically fangirl over (he’s so fuzzy)

    In preparation for Halloween last year, I had bought bunches of brown fleece and practiced some rusty skills on my sewing machine. A few newspaper stencils, online references, and youtube tutorials later, I’d managed to sew up a kigurumi of the character, with demon horns and everything, and two sizes too large so that my sis can fit in it too. It’s perfect for when you’re sick and need to get all bundled up.

    It reminds me of when you made that Dance Korea! video during Chuseok way back, so if I went trick or treating and knocked on your door, I would be wearing that!

  16. Okay, last post (I swear). Just watched that Baskin Robbins commercial, and 3 things: 1) What in the mid 80’s, aired only from 2-6am, commercial break hell was that? 2) the male VO totally sounds like Simon. 3) the girl creeping in to join the group at the end without saying a word was everything. XD

  17. Do the t-shirts have Spudgy or Meems on the back of them, or is that just on the hoodies?

  18. Hallowe’en is the BEST holiday. If I was trick or treating to your house, I would be dressed as Garth from Wayne’s World, on my world wide search looking for Wayne. Have you seen Wayne?! ;)

  20. Hey guys! My family will come to your door singing traditional Halloween songs, (trick or treat, smell my feet, gimme something good to eat, not to big, not to small, just the size of Montreal!) the kids will be a corpse bride (age 11), Lloyd the green lego ninja (age 6), and Judy Hopps from Zootopia (age 4) followed by Me and the Hubby in Yip Yip (Sesame street) costumes in pink and blue. Gotta be careful though, no healthy things like toothbrushes or fruit please, or there will be tricks played on you!

  21. I commented this on your video (as SoulRamen) but I really wanna make a Spudgy costume! Where I could dress up as the little sushi Spudgy, but human! haha. I hope I can pull it off and have everything done for Halloween! I’m gonna do it for you guys!

  25. This is the first time I’m going to be actually dressed up this Halloween, instead of just putting together an outfit from my closet. I’m going as The Morrigan! She’s a Celtic goddess of war, and I’m specifically dressing up as The Morrigan from the comic series The Wicked + The Divine. It’s a gorgeous comic, and its premise is that every 90 years, twelve gods return as pop stars and die in two years. One of those gods is The Morrigan, and I’m super excited to dress up as her.

  26. Hey, I just checked out your store; those hoodies are great. However, labels and descriptions are backwards. Your Meemer hoodies say they have Spudgy, and vice versa.

    Also, I am going as a ceiling fan. I have a shirt that says, “Go ceilings!” and pom poms. I am a fan of ceilings.

  27. I’m going to try and make my own punk/demon/fire dragon costume this year! I’d show up at the door in metallic homemade wings, horns, and spikey tail, black and red corset and tutu, flame tights and scaly makeup. (I’m pretty excited this year!)

  28. I’m going a Philipa Coulson, Agent of SHIELD. My nephews are going as Hawkeye and the Hulk, so I am dressing up with them. (I love Black Widow, but I have no interest in wearing a bodysuit.)

  29. I want to try all the donuts and the burger! They look soooo good. I thought about dressing up this year for Halloween, but I kinda can’t due to school and I’m meeting people at a meetup.

    The fiancee is going to a rave with some friends and I think he’s going as army man.
