Yumenoshima 2017 Halloween Pumpkin Month

The Yumenoshima 2017 Halloween Pumpkin Month celebration just started and this year the pumpkins are even bigger. There will be over 100 huge ghost pumpkins from Hironaki Omiya City, Ibaraki prefecture that weigh 50 to 100 kilograms! You can visit the Yumenoshima Park and Botanical Gardens any time of the year but the month of October is even more fun!  Pre-Halloween you can see the giant pumpkins and take great photos of your goblins rolling around.Yumenoshima 2016 Halloween Pumpkin Month
