Are you ready to split some seams? Shake in your shoes? How about you snack on a batch of snake and spider stew?
Kumamoto guys and ghouls are invited to food bar JOHN ROE in Kumamoto City to celebrate Halloween this year, KumAJET-style! Reunite with the friends you’ve made on JET, make new friends with the Kumamoto locals, chit-chat, get down, and dig in to some otsumami!
The highlight of the night will include a Halloween Costume Contest where we will award prizes through a ballot system for the Cutest Costume, Scariest Costume, and the Most Creative. While you do not have to dress up to attend this event, we encourage you to dive into the spirit of Halloween and get dolled up.
While party time is drawing near, rest easy–you still have some time to throw something together for the party! Do you need some ideas for what to wear? What can you do that’s simple, cheap, and creative?
Check out these tips from PopSugar, Woman’s Day, and Buzzfeed for costume inspiration. You can also scope out your local 100-yen shops (like Daiso, Seria, or Watts) for affordable costume pieces and makeup. Amazon Japan’s also got some decent deals at their Halloween Store if you want to go all fancy-schmancy. No matter what, have fun with it!
🦇Mark your calendars for October 28 at 7:30pm and read more about KumAJET’s event here.🦇

How much does it cost?
1600 yen gets you all-you-can drink with otsumami, the delightful Japanese snacks often served with beer. Please note, otsumami is snack food, not dinner, so if you’re looking for an actual meal, please load up before you come to the party.
