The Tamagawa Takashimaya Shopping Center held a Halloween Festival from October 25 to 31, 2008.
Located in the Futako Tamagawa area of Tokyo, Japan, where two lines of their subway system cross, the shopping centre features the popular Takashimaya department store chain. The mall was the first suburban shopping centre in the country, created in 1969.
The first 1,000 shoppers in costume showing receipts for more than a certain amount of yen could go on a "stamp rally" around the mall. Those collecting all the stamps would receive candy at the end. "Sesame Street Presents: Balloon" was a balloon give-away at various children's clothing stores in the mall.
