Halloween Competition! Win Limited Edition Halloween Pocky and Pretz! CLOSED


Ahoy-hoy, Inside Japan Centre readers!

As you may have realised, Halloween has arrived at Japan Centre, and to celebrate we are very excited to be giving away a selection of Limited Edition Halloween tasters to two lucky readers. But we cannot give such fantastic prizes away to just anyone. Therefore, we are please to announce our 2014…



Here are some details for you:

Is Halloween Celebrated in Japan?

halloweenYes it is! Although Halloween has only been celebrated in Japan for less than twenty years, it has quickly become one of their most joyously celebrated adopted Western holidays. Every year many well known Japanese shop brands and food manufacturers release limited edition flavours and varieties of popular foods and drinks, and this year Glico have created a “Lovely Halloween” range of treats, now available to buy online. Read more about how Halloween is celebrated in Japan here.

Alternatively, you could try your luck and win one of two Halloween tasters for yourself!


What is in these Halloween Tasters?

Our expert tasters at Japan Centre’s online hub can guarantee that these are some of the tastiest Pocky and Pretz we have ever eaten.
