“Ikebukuro Halloween Cosplay Festival” is one of the largest Halloween events in Japan, with more than 20,000 cosplayers participating in the Ikebukuro East Exit area. In 2020, when the parade was held online due to the influence of the new coronavirus, the parade will resume in 2021. To the extent possible, we will return to the scale of the event before 2019, and aim to hold an event that can be enjoyed by more cosplayers, photographers, and visitors, including locals in Toshima Ward.
In addition, this year marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of Toshima Ward, and in collaboration with various events held at the same time as the Ikebukuro Halloween Cosplay Festival, the image of Toshima Ward as a city of international art and culture will be held. We will work to contribute to the development of the city.
Event details and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
*Schedules, such as the scale and content of the event, may change depending on the future infection status of the new coronavirus and government policies.
