One of Japan's biggest Halloween celebrations takes place in Shibuya, where giant crowds of costumed party-goers assemble for an evening of frightful fun.
One other costume party held on Halloween in Japan is a bit different. It's called "Jimi Halloween" (Mundane or Plain Halloween), and was started by entertainment media group Daily Portal Z. The point of the party, which sees office workers dress up in the most understated and humorously mundane costumes possible, was to let people dress up for Halloween without having to deal with the embarrassment of wearing an extravagant costume on their morning commute.
The idea has become a yearly hit since it started back in 2014, and is now celebrated throughout Japan, with many taking to Twitter to show off how plain and niche their costumes can be. Here are a few standout costumes from this year!
