in your post, you write that, "However, next year, they have already said that there will be no more Halloween in the streets." Where did you come across that information? I'd like to know more. Thanks.

Ban Halloween in Japan, I don't care!

Halloween is not essential to Westerners living in Japan, and Japanese people certainly can live without it.

The craze for Halloween has come to Japan for two reasons. First, people in Japan and everywhere, especially younger people, will take on new things if it gives them an excuse to have fun. Secondly, businesses will always promote whatever new nonsense arises because it gives them an opportunity to make more money.

Halloween has long been problematic in the countries where it is traditionally celebrated because stupid and/or criminal behavior often accompanies the night. Western people have always had mixed feelings about Halloween. I won't get into the origins of Halloween, but I can safely say that it is not an important cultural event in the countries where it is traditionally practiced.

If you the Japanese reader really don't want Halloween in Japan, call your diet members and lobby them to put forth a bill banning Halloween in Japan. We foreigners are not holding a gun to your head, metaphorically or otherwise, demanding that you have Halloween in Japan.

What you saw in late October of 2018 was a pretty accurate representation of Halloween, a lot of innocent fun ruined by stupidity and mindless criminality.

Halloween is not going to change. If you Japanese choose to keep Halloween (and you can choose otherwise) don't blame us foreigners.

I have a question. Has anyone seen anyone seen any video footage of foreigners physically making contact with the truck? At the time of the incident I saw lots of news footage of what appeared to be young Japanese men pushing or jumping on the truck. I did see some foreigners standing around apparently enjoying the scene, which is boorish behavior, but not a crime in itself. If any foreigners physically took part in damaging the truck, of course they should face the legal consequences. My fear is that some foreigners may be used as scapegoats merely because they were in proximity to the event. Blaming foreigners, ever popular in Japan, and popular almost everywhere in the world!

But hold on, maybe I'm wrong! If there is video of foreigners damaging the truck, please direct me to a site where I can see it. However, if there is no video of foreigners damaging the truck, hard questions of the Japanese police and media need to be asked.

Codpiece, what codpiece? It looks like the truncated nub of a p***s. Also, what about those large, grey, metallic nipples? I suppose it's not such a bad thing that public money was spent so that the artist, Kenji Yanobe, can give expression to his weird sexual whatever - however odd and disturbing many people may find his work. All the same, yay for freedom of expression and the good judgment and wisdom of government officials!
