(Where/) are you celebrating Halloween this weekend?

Surprisingly there is a huge amount of Halloween events in Saitama this weekend. Its hard to choose which one to go to. The one I would love to go to is a little bit far away and a little bit too late for my young kids. It looks really awesome if anyone is in the Tokorozawa area: http://insaitama.com/event/exotic-halloween-seibuen-yuenchi-tokorozawa/ So its a toss up between a parade with trick or treat in Higashimatsuyama or a spooky night in Shinrin Park... Do you celebrate Halloween in Japan? How / Where?

    Some drinks tonight at a friend's place where we're going to revisit 'The Blair Witch Project' to see if it was as scary as everyone thought at the time of its initial release (which seems like ages ago now, and I haven't seen since). Then I think someone's bringing a copy of The Evil Dead, which we all love. Sorry, I realise this isn't an 'event' suggestion which you might have been after.

    Our family is going to be staying in and watching some of the scary movies that have recently been released on Amazon and Hulu for Halloween. The weekend events tend to be quite busy for us so movies and pizza are perfect. If they did a have an actual spooky event going on locally, I would definitely want to check it out though! I haven't found the trick or treat parades to be that special, just my opinion though!

    Tomorrow we're going to a "Pumpkin Carving" party, probably using a variety of orange fruits. Kabocha are way too hard to cut! On Halloween night I'm teaching a lesson, but for the last week I've been teaching a special Halloween lesson - Trick or Treat and Halloween activities.

    Sadly in bed. Signed off sick. No Halloween for me this year. Hope everyone enjoys theirs.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Great article. What do you recommend? I have a MFA in Visual Arts. And teaching for the past 10 years in college level. Do I need teacher certification to land anything with JET? Thanks so much

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
