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 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!
