The Eerie Costumers Of Japan’s Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons

Japan and cosplay go hand-in-hand, so it’s no surprise that every year the gigantic Halloween celebration in Shibuya yields a mass of creative costumers. An often overlooked celebration in Kyoto, however, offers just as as impressive -and possibly more terrifying-assembly of costumes.

On the third Saturday of every October, Kyoto plays host to a recreation of the Hyakki Yagyō (Night Parade of One Hundred Demons), where a massive swarm of Japanese ghouls and monsters are unleashed in pandemonium.

To recreate the legendary event of yokai invading the human world, Kyoto’s Taishogun Shopping Street (which already has dozens of yokai-themed shops and spooky sculptures) welcomes an event called the “Yokai Parade”, where hundreds of people dress up in amazing costumes based off of ghastly creatures from Japanese folklore.

Photographer Keiichiro Yasugi took some excellent pictures of the frightful night and showcased them on Twitter.
