Tokyo’s Best Halloween Parties 2018

Lily Crossley-Baxter

If you’re reading this, you already know that Halloween has morphed into an out-of-control street party in Tokyo. For some of the free street action, check our guide to Halloween in Tokyo. But if you’re looking for somewhere a little less public where you can kick dance till dawn and enjoy a whole roster of international and local DJs (other than DJ Police), here are some suggestions for Tokyo Halloween parties.

Costumes are definitely encouraged and often get you discounted entry (for an idea of what to expect, see the best costumes of Tokyo Halloween of years gone by…) but are not required. Warning: before you bite our heads off, some of these ain’t super cheap!

Tokyo Decadence DX Halloween

One of the biggest and most provocative Halloween nights in town, the Decadence party has enough unusual performers to make you forget about the music all together. The headline DJ acts include world-record-breaking 83-year-old DJ Sumirock as well as DJ Bruce Mennel will get you back on track though (if only for a while). The church theme gives a hint as to what’s in store, but you never really know what to expect at a Decadence Halloween night.

Entry is ¥4,500 on the door with discounts of between ¥500 and ¥1,500 available depending on your costume. Advance tickets are ¥3,500.

Halloween Weekend at Womb

Mega-club Womb is celebrating Halloween on three different nights this year, so you can party until you look like an actual zombie. Due to its central Shibuya location, it’s a great place to head after the scramble antics—plus it has international DJs to mark the occasion. Friday is host to American DJ Promnite, Saturday is the Cosmopolitan Halloween Party and Wednesday is the P.O.W.E.R BiG Halloween Party with a special secret guest and Cyberjapan Dancers.

Entry ranges from ¥2,500 with tickets to ¥3,000 at the door. There are costume discounts of ¥500¥1,000 depending on the night (as well as reduced price for girls and members).

Head to one of Tokyo’s biggest clubs for two nights of music and dance that will take you out of this world (and era). The first night has a futuristic outer-space theme with entertainement from the Cyberjapan Dancers, Mad Tribe and VJ Jealousy as well as enough psychedelic trance to last you a lifetime (whichever planet it’s spent on). Saturday night will take you back to Edo times with a harmony theme and Ibiza DJ Alex Kennon and the annual costume contest.

Entry is ¥4,500 for on-the-door entry, ¥3,000 for advance tickets, and costume wearers get pretty decent discounts too.

This is another major Halloween party at the quirky (and glamorous) Trump Room in Shibuya, with some of the best costumes, a unique atmosphere and wild party people—with cutting-edge music you can get crazy to on the dance floor. Last year over 900 people attended and this year should be even bigger.

Advance tickets are ¥2,500 while on-the-door ones are ¥3,000.
