Get on the Halloween Party Train! Yokohama’s Chinatown to Tokyo’s Shibuya

party-train_220x
Every Halloween for the past 30 years or so, the gaijin/aliens (foreigners) of Tokyo have had a tradition of getting roaring drunk in costume and then turning a couple of cars of the Yamanote commuter line into a “party train” much to the chagrin of sad-sack salarymen.

See right:
Please party on the train!
     (3Yen / 2008-11-01)

  
And, what’s the quickest way to ruin kinky fun? Legalize it

On the Tokyu Line between Yokohama’s Chinatown and Tokyo’s Shibuya districts, Tokyu Corporation chartered their own official Halloween Party Train and ruined a lot of the clandestine fun, meh.
To learn more about the original, evil-alien, Halloween Party Train refer to:

The rise of cosplay = The fall of the economy

An interest in cosplay should be a key no-no for any job prospect evaluation by human resources, as I have said countless times* here on the 3Yen.

Why the rise of cosplay is a bad sign for the economy
—Dressing up like Wolverine … is probably more fun than scouring the classifieds for menial jobs—

FEMM’s Tokyo Takeover

MTV Japan has a real winner wiener here…

F.E.M.M.Far East Mention Mannequins’ Tokyo Takeover, an alternative guide to the Japan’s capital…MTV 81femm-tokyo-takeover_crop

Japan’s MTV has always been the wildly unsuccessful, bastard child of the MTV’s localized channels worldwide. As a whole, MTV doesn’t translate well into Japanese and saccharine J-Pop doesn’t present well in the MTV format.

Global Warming in Tokyo results in…

Global Warming has resulted in the loss of habitat for Polar Bears* as evidenced by the appearance of this bear in downtown Shibuya Tokyo.

Translation: said-openIf you were allowed to walk the polar bear in Shibuya, this is what it would look like, ha, ha.said-closed

The above polar bear costume was seen walking to a TV interview in Shibuya last night—I guess it’s always best to test your costume fully before Halloween.
