The Internet ate up pictures of the crazy costumes in Shibuya last year, but Tokyoites aren't the only ones enjoying Halloween in Japan.

While the tentacles of terror haven't completely made their way into the countryside, Osakans have definitely welcomed the holiday and you can expect celebrations there to be a big hit on the weekend.

The southern parts of the city, Shinsaibashi and Namba, should be among the better spots for haunting. This country's cosplay (dressing up as your favorite manga or anime character) is among the best in the world and it isn't too much more work to turn Sailor Moon into Zombie Sailor Moon. Or how about dressing up as Zombie Glico Man and running over to Ebisu Bridge to take pictures in front of Osaka's iconic Glico Man sign?
