(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?

    Definitely Shibuya crossing or pink cow Roppongi :)

    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.

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
