There really isn’t too much to add in the way of words to what I wrote in ‘Luke Who Turned Up For Halloween! Pt I‘ but this time on arriving at Hachiko exit of Shibuya station we were actually met by the sight of hundreds of cosplayers celebrating Halloween night. The main difference for me was that this time I was equipped with my lightsaber which I hadn’t bothered to take out in the previous Saturday.
It didn’t take too long for the TV news crews to approach and yet again I was interviewed; this time by TBS but after my three interviews ended up on the scrap heap last week I certainly won’t be holding too much hope of any of it making the cut when it airs on Monday lunchtime!
Batman (a.k.a. Neil the nurse from the previous weekends event) and I teamed up again and wandered the streets with the odd convenience store beer for comfort. No point in bothering with bars as all the action is on the streets with Center Gai and the streets running parallel all packed full of snap-happy people.
Having walked home on Saturday night I wasn’t gonna make that mistake again as I had work in the morning. The experience of last year taught me that one needs to start heading to the station at least an hour before your intended train due to extreme crowding and Hachiko exit was absolutely rammed and it took about 30 minutes to get from the gate to the platform to board an overly full train.
