In the furthest reach of the universe, realms between realms, a class of supernatural beings exist. Since the old days, Japanese people have often regarded mysterious phenomena and occurrences in life like the work of the “Yokai” monsters. Unlike ghosts, Yokai monsters have physical bodies and are often portrayed in Anime as well. They come in diverse ranges, such as those who pull pranks on people, and others that bring fortune. For the Japanese, Yokai monsters are frightening yet familiar beings. Usually unfathomable and not visible to the human eye, the dwellings of these Yokai appear once in a while, manifested to us as the…Halloween Town: Yokai Festival! Returning for its second year, the Yokai Festival is a two-day event organized by Downtown East and the Singapore Cosplay Club for enthusiasts and fun-seekers. Explore activities, games, stage events and cosplay while indulging in some tasty treats! Come join the crowd as supernatural beings and roam Halloween Town. Disguise your humanity as you explore Halloween Town. Be cautious not to reveal to the Yokai your real identity!
This year, follow the Yokais’ story every week on the Downtown East social media platforms and take part in exciting online giveaways.
