What gives scary movies their creep factor? It’s Foley sound effects artists who make doors squeak, monsters chomp, and thunderstorms boom and crackle. This special event features Oscar-nominated animated films with a live sound effects performance by a Foley artist right in the theater. Goro Koyama, an internationally recognized Foley artist for movies such as Blade Runner 2049 (2017) and Vikings (TV series), will teach you the art of making spooky sounds using everyday objects! For children of all ages with parental supervision.
Japanese Haunted House (Obake no Yashiki)
Children enter a classic Japanese Haunted House to discover some of Japan’s most famous ghosts and goblins — a ghost (yurei) in the graveyard, the long neck woman (rokurokubi) and a one-eyed boy (hitotsume kozo) who scares children by making his enormous eye glow and sticking out his long tongue! For children ages 4+, requires parental supervision.
Festival Games
Enjoy fun Japanese festival games at yatai vendor booths such as wanage (ring toss) superball scooping, shateki (rubber band flinging) and senbonbiki (pull a string to get a mystery gift) and win prizes! For children of all ages with parental supervision.
100 Scary Stories
Join a storyteller in the Kaidan Hyaku-Monogatari (“100 Ghost Stories”) tradition. As each tale is told, candles are extinguished one by one to create an eerie atmosphere where an obake might just appear. For children ages 3+ with parental supervision as some stories might be scary.
3D Trick Art
Create the ultimate selfie with our Halloween-themed 3D Trick Art photobooth! A popular phenomenon in Japan, trick art is large-scale works of art that seemingly add a third dimension, which the audience can enter and interact with. For children of all ages with parental supervision.
Candy Sculptures
Candy 5, a trained amezaiku artist, will entertain and mesmerize audiences by creating amazing ghost and goblin-shaped candy for children! Amezaiku is a traditional Japanese candy craft in which an artist shapes multi-colored taffy into incredible, edible sculptures. For children of all ages with parental supervision.
