Samurai Dave: The Roving Ronin Report

Rambling Narrative of Travels, Thoughts, and Embellishments

The Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Train 2006 Movie (kind of)

The Roving Ronin Report Presents the Full-Length Feature (7 1/2 mins) of:

The Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Train 2006

I finally got around to making a more indepth follow-up to my early Yamanote Halloween Train videos.I have more commentary from myself and from participants including one who confirms the existence of the Halloween Train event going back to 1990. It also contains a brief message to a pair of Tokyo-living Wikipedia users who last year did everything they could to get an article on the event deleted because they never heard of it.Also for some of the critics who decry the event as just crazy gaijin taking over the train, you’ll note that nearly half the people in this video are Japanese.And here’s last year’s montage video slightly modified with an opening sequence.

  1. > Also for some of the critics who decry the event as just crazy gaijin taking over the train, you’ll note that nearly half the people in this video are Japanese.

    yeah, that seems true. but most such japanese are a sort of unfortunately naive and undereducated people, who would surely enjoy disrespect from silent majority of japanese. look at other majority of japanese who won’t see you in the train! what a pity to see such idiots.

    i’m sure almost all the righteous americans and other christians will scorn you.

  2. Yes, it does go back to before 1990. I was unfortunately on that train by accident the first year it was held. Personally, I think it’s a stupid event and it makes me sick hearing about it every year.
