As a major center for Japan’s anime culture, Ikebukuro has gone for a slightly more Japanese approach to this imported annual festival.
Expect to see more people dressed up as their favorite manga or anime character rather than the more gruesome costumes that you’ll see elsewhere.
While it’s free to watch, if you want to dress up and take part, you need to pay ¥1,000 to the organizers.
