Thank you also to Officer Ken Leong from the San Jose Police Department for his part in our annual safety skit and Truck #1 from the San Jose Fire Department for coming out to 5th and Jackson to hand out treats!

In 2003 San Jose Taiko in partnership with the Japantown Business Association started Halloween in Japantown with a simple idea of providing a fun, safe option for trick-or-treating during Halloween in our neighborhood. We love that so many families and merchants now consider Halloween in Japantown a community tradition.  Thank you Japantown businesses, organizations, and families for all your support!
